Demand for Lego rising in Europe, Asia

Sales growth was strong in Europe and Asia, with double digit increases in both regions. The company’s net profit remained steady at 3.5 billion DKK. Lego said that it was accelerating its global investment programme. Last year, the company opened its third manufacturing facility in Kladno where it employs more than 2,500 people. Lego group chief executive Jorgen Vig Knudstorp said: "Maintaining double-digit growth year on year through more than a decade is a testament to the never-ending possibilities that children find in Lego play and the result of the hard work of more than 18,000 Lego colleagues around the world."
