Danish Lego to build EUR125m complex in Hungary

January 25/2012

(Realdeal) -- Danish toymaker Lego will start construction of a 80,000-sqm plant in Nyiregyhaza this summer, the general manager and vice-president of Lego Manufacturing Kft told reporters, after signing a project agreement with the citys mayor on Tuesday. The 125-million-euro facility is planned to be completed by 2014 and employ around 1,550 people during peak periods, said Jens Peter Clausen.

He said Lego was seeking Hungarian co-funding, which the company would turn towards installing environment-friendly technologies.


Lego has a long-term commitment in Nyiregyhaza, said Clausen, noting that the company was in the process of buying 100-hectare land allowing expansion after 2014.

Project Manager Martin Svejda Greenfild said that moulding, decorating and packaging work would be done in the new plant.

Lego is currently renting a facility of US electronics firm Flextronics in the city, which employs up to 1,300 people during the September-October peak production period, said Clausen.
