Lego's London HQ
Lego has expanded the size of its London headquarters by 50% as it continues to invest in the UK despite the Brexit uncertainty.
The London office is one Lego’s main offices outside of its global headquarters in Billund, Denmark.
The group said the move will help it ‘attract more global talents to the company’ and hailed it as ‘a significant expansion.’
The first cohort of employees moved into the London office in 2014. Today, 275 LEGO employees, representing more than 40 different functions, are based there.
“It is our mission to inspire and develop children all over the world by bringing creative LEGO play experiences into their hands,” said John Goodwin, executive vice president and CFO of the LEGO Group.
“Our main offices play an important role in enabling us to do so, as they help us attract extremely talented employees and offer exciting career opportunities that engage and develop our employees.
“This is important as it further enables us to continually challenge ourselves and push the boundaries for the great LEGO experiences we deliver to children all over the world.”
He added: “To make more room for our current employees working here in London as well as ensure that we have capacity for potential future growth, now is the time to expand the office.
“The continued investment in London sends a clear signal that we consider it to be a great location for us, with access to a broad pool of talented employees.”
The office expansion will be located at 1 Plough Place, adjacent to the current office at New Fetter Lane 8-10, and it will span two floors covering a total of 19,424 sq. feet/1,804 m2.
The first employees are expected to move into the new office areas during the 4th quarter of 2017.
