The LEGO Group begins operations at temporary packaging facility in Chesterfield

With a $1 billion manufacturing plant still in the offing in Chesterfield, Lego Group recently kicked off operations at a temporary product packaging facility elsewhere in the county.

The Danish toymaker is now up and running at 1600 Ruffin Mill Road, where it leases a 264,000-square-foot warehouse that handles the packaging of the company’s building-block kits.

The temporary center is a precursor to Lego’s plans to open a 1.7 million-square-foot manufacturing plant in the nearby Meadowville Technology Park.

The opening of the packaging facility also comes as Chesterfield provides clearer insight into incentives tied to the overall Lego project with a recent amendment to its existing grant agreement regarding the company’s efforts in the county.

In the interim, the Ruffin Mill Road facility helps meet Lego’s packaging needs and supports the company’s operations across North and South America.

“Our new external packing facility plays an important role in meeting consumer demand in the Americas region,” a Lego spokesperson said in a prepared statement. “We are enthusiastic about our progress (in 2023) and look forward to the construction of a state-of-the-art factory.”
