The restructuring process at LEGO continues with the firm now considering moving all or parts of its production to Eastern Europe or China.
Publish date:

The firm reported a pre-tax loss of 156 million kroner ($26 million) earlier this month and announced it would move its Swiss factory to the Czech Republic.

Lego chief executive Joergen Vig Knudstorp (above) said the Swiss move was a test, and could be followed by a complete or partial move of the company's main production facilities in Billund, Denmark.

"In the long term, I think that everything will be moved," Vig Knudstorp was quoted as saying.

A spokeswoman for the firm said no decision had been made yet, but confirmed that outsourcing production to Eastern Europe or China was being considered. Any restructuring plans would be completed by 2010.
