Billund, Denmark - December 20, 2022: The LEGO Group has today unveiled revised plans for a brand-new cutting-edge Innovation Campus in Billund, Denmark. The new campus will provide a home for thousands of talented colleagues working within Product Marketing & Development functions and supporting Engineering & Quality functions in an inspiring and creative workplace environment.
Construction of this state-of-the-art building will commence in 2024. Innovation Campus will be located at Kløvermarken in Billund, making it the company's third grand campus in Billund and forming part of its plans to significantly expand and upgrade its global headquarters.
