Hermès confirms new factory in Auvergne


With this announcement, the brand reaffirms its regional anchor in the Auvergne region. The new workshop will join the Maroquinerie de Sayat to form Hermès seventh leather goods hub. 250 jobs due to be created

Committed to building long-term relationships with its local partners, Hermès has announced that it is working in cooperation with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Entreprises regional agency to prepare for this new workshop, and will strengthen its collaboration with the French employment agency (Pôle emploi) to recruit its artisans locally. 250 jobs are expected to be created in Auvergne by 2025.

"In a spirit of mentoring that places the transmission of know-how and artisan culture at its heart, the site will draw on the expertise of the teams at the Maroquinerie de Sayat, which has been established in Auvergne for almost 20 years". The first intake of trainee artisans will commence their apprenticeships in a temporary workshop in Riom next November.

Since 2010, Hermès has opened nine leather goods workshops and recruited more than 2 500 artisans, bringing the number of saddler-leatherworkers employed by the group to more than 3 800.

The Maroquinerie de Guyenne (Gironde) and the Maroquinerie de Montereau (Seine-et-Marne) will be inaugurated in 2021, and two further workshops – one in Louviers (Eure) and the other in the Ardennes – are scheduled to open in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

The new workshop in Auvergne will become Hermès Leather Goods & Saddlery division’s 22nd production site. All of the sites are located in France.
