Despite the UK’s intended withdrawal from the European Union, the LEGO Group are expanding operations in the City of London. This will add office capacity on top of the company’s London office, which opened in 2014, of over 50%.
Bloomberg reported the increased presence in the UK’s capital:
Lego A/S is expanding its London base, adding more than 50 percent in office capacity to its operations in the U.K., the Danish company said in a statement on Wednesday.
The “significant expansion” of a “strategically important office in the heart of London” will add to one of Lego’s “main offices outside the headquarters” in western Denmark, the company said. “The office will provide more space for current employees as well as ensure that the Lego Group can expand the employee base in London in the coming years depending on demand,” it said.
The maker of toy plastic bricks, which has had employees in its main London office since 2014, now has 275 people working for it in the city. The expansion will be at Plough Place, close to Lego’s office at New Fetter Lane, and will span two floors.
With the recent opening of the flagship LEGO Store, the LEGO Group shows a continued commitment to the significant UK market.
