Lego Increases Production Capacity in Hungary

The Lego Group announces a significant investment in further production capacity in Nyíregyháza, Hungary. Depending on sales development up to 4,000 employees will work at the site by 2020.

In October 2015, the Lego Group announced that their factory in Nyíregyháza, Hungary, was planned to undergo expansions and that further expansions were being considered in order to meet the expected demand from customers and consumers.

On January 15, the Lego Group announced that it will expand the factory with additional molding, packaging and further warehousing and processing areas as well as administrative and facility buildings. The decision to invest in further manufacturing capacity has been made based on the Lego Group’s expectations for the long term growth in sales globally.

Once the expansion is completed, the current factory will have doubled in size. The expansion represents an investment of a EUR 3 digit million amount towards 2020. Depending on the development in sales in the coming years, potentially as many as 1,600 new jobs could be created in Nyíregyháza towards 2020, bringing the number of employees up to approximately 4,000.

The construction of the new expansion is expected to begin within the coming months, with the new facilities being ready for production by 2018. The new molding facility will have room for further 768 molding machines, while the packing facility will increase the output by a factor of approximately 1.5.
