Piaggio Turns 10!

October 11, 2017

In 2007, the Piaggio Group marked an important milestone as it officially broke ground for a scooter plant in Vietnam. Ten years later, the premium scooter maker celebrates a few more significant milestones as it holds its 10th birthday bash.

The 10th year anniversary celebration gave the Piaggio Group an opportunity to award its loyal employees who have stayed faithful to the company all these years. Thanks to their efforts and hard work, Piaggio has been able to achieve the following:

2007 - 1st milestone: Vehicle Plant Ground Breaking Ceremony

2008 – 2nd milestone: Pre-series of 1st Ten Vespa Made in Vietnam

2009 – 3rd milestone: Vehicle Plant Grand Opening Ceremony

2009 – 4th milestone: First MIV Vespa Commercial Launch in VN

2010 – 5th St milestone: Vietnam Became the Asia Pacific Regional Headquarter

2012 – 6th milestone: Engine Plant Grand Opening Ceremony

2013 –  7th milestone: Test Track Grand Opening Ceremony

2014 – 8th milestone: Piaggio Vietnam ranked in the TOP 50 best place to work in Vietnam

2015 – 9th milestone: The 500.000th Vespa Made in Vietnam Produced

2017 – 10th milestone: 1st GTS Super Made in Vietnam


Since it broke ground in Vietnam in 2007, the Piaggio Group has rolled out more than half a million scooters. These have been sold in Vietnam and have also ben exported to various countries around the world. The Piaggio Vinh Phuc Industrial plant now employs 1,000 workers, with plant capacity of around 300,000 units a year.

And with the way things are going, it seems that the Piaggio Group will have nowhere to go but up in the years to come.
