Tour in the LEGO Factory, Billund
The Kornmarken factory’s main building is 480 m long and is made up of 12 modules. Each module houses approx. 65 injection moulding machines, and the Kornmarken factory has a total area of more than 62,500 m². The factory employs 800 people.
The Moulding Factory is where all LEGO® bricks and minifigures are moulded. LEGO elements and parts are transferred from the warehouse to other LEGO production departments for assembly, decoration and packing.
Although in 1947 most people doubted that plastic would ever replace wood, LEGO System that year bought its first injection moulding machines. Production of 4 and 8 stud bricks began in 1949, and in 1958 the company began manufacturing its familiar bricks with the interlocking tubes inside. LEGO bricks are manufactured in Billund, Monterrey in Mexico, Nyíregyháza in Hungary and Kladno in the Czech Republic.
Tour in the LEGO Idea House, Billund
The LEGO Group´s historical department, the LEGO Idea House, is where you can learn the amazing story of a family belief in an idea, the meaning and the substance of the LEGO ® name and brand and our reason for being.
Through a tour in the historical exhibition you will learn the milestones of how the LEGO Group through three generations of family ownership has grown from a small local company into one of the world´s leading providers of creative, developmental play materials.
