Boston Named New Home of LEGO North American Headquarters
The LEGO Group is moving its North American headquarters to Massachusetts. The company – headquartered in Enfield, Connecticut since 1975 – has selected Boston as its new host city.
A press release from the company says the move would support the business's long-term growth ambitions to bring LEGO to play to even more children in the U.S. and the Americas region.
"Boston is ranked as one of the best cities to attract and retain talent," LEGO Group in the Americas President Skip Kodak said. "This, along with its world-class academic institutions, skilled workforce, and great quality of life makes it an ideal location for our U.S. head office."
According to a release, "the move to the new office will begin in a phased way beginning in mid-2025 and completed by the end of 2026."
The company promises employment at the new Massachusetts location for those currently employed in Enfield and financial and job placement assistance to those who opt not to move.
Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont said in a statement, "I am disappointed to hear today's news, but I am confident in Connecticut's ability to attract and retain companies that value our competitive advantages in education, workforce, and quality of life."
The LEGO Group currently employs about 2,600 people in the U.S., where it has been operating since 1962. The company says, "There are currently around 740 people working full time" from its Enfield office.
