The expansion will include additional packaging modules, warehousing areas, and miscellaneous facilities, which will add 30,000 square meters of built-up area to the current site and will increase the packaging capacity by nearly 30 percent. The Nyíregyháza factory currently employs 3,300 people, with an additional 300 team members expected to be added over the course of the expansion.
Work on the expansion will begin this year and is expected to be completed in 2025.
The factory expansions are designed to support the Lego Group’s sustainability ambitions, including the company’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions by 37 percent by 2032 (compared to 2019). The company built a solar plant at the factory site in 2021, which includes more than 9,000 solar panels, and plans to further increase the amount of energy on-site through rooftop solar panels on the new buildings.
