Lego to add two new production halls at facility in Kladno

The Danish children’s toy company Lego, which runs a production facility in Kladno near Prague, has said it will add two new halls soon in the aim of raising production by 60 percent and creating an estimated 200 new jobs. Lego already employs 1,100 people in the Kladno area. The head of the Kladno branch Carsten Rasmussen said on Friday that the construction of the additional space would cost 1.2 billion crowns. Lego would like to open the new halls by next May. The mayor of Kladno, Dan Jiránek, who negotiated with the firm, said that the town would have to invest around five million crowns for new sidewalks, streetlamps and bus stops.
