LEGO announces extension of its factory in Mexico.
The fresh facility is set to be operational by 2025 and will accommodate 900 staff members. With this recent addition, the Danish corporation will integrate 42 production lines: 36 for pre-packaging of paper bags and 6 for final packaging.
“We are immensely content to communicate this extension,” expressed Nancy Sanchez, Vice President of Americas Manufacturing and GM of LEGO Operaciones de Mexico. “Fifteen years post the initiation of operations at the Cienega de Flores plant, we persist in investing and enlisting more adept personnel. We deeply appreciate the backing from the local authorities and the State.”
In August 2022, Lego further disclosed a $507 million investment plan to construct two edifices within the Cienega de Flores complex.
It’s noteworthy that, during this administration, Nuevo León has verified $42 billion in overseas investments. This encompasses 203 projects (104 being novel investments and 99 expansions), poised to generate approximately 250,000 fresh employment opportunities.
This expansion by LEGO signifies the company’s dedication to Mexico and job generation. As emphasized in the announcement, it also mirrors the robustness of Nuevo León’s economy and its allure for foreign investments.
