Danish toymaker Lego plans to expand its base in Nyíregyháza northeastern Hungary, Jesper Hassellund, who heads the company’s local unit, said in an interview in business daily Világgazdaság.
“The Lego group set up its manufacturing unit in Nyíregyháza in 2008, and we inaugurated a brand new plant in 2014. Today, we have about 2,800 workers and we plan to expand further, which means we’re going to build new production halls, an automated warehouse, a conventional warehouse and other service areas in the coming period, adjusted to the demand for Lego products,” Hassellund told the paper.
The plant in Nyíregyháza is one of five Lego production bases around the world. It turns out both Lego Duplo and Lego toys, including Lego Architecture, Lego Classic and Lego Juniors sets.
