LEGO bricks and elements are manufactured at the group’s own factories in Denmark, Hungary, Czech Republic and Mexico. The moulds used are accurate to within two-thousandth of a millimetre. Because of this high degree of accuracy, there are only around 18 bricks in every million produced that fail to meet the company’s high quality standard. LEGO makes around 36 billion pieces every year! The LEGO Group shared this documentary detailing the manufacturing process on Youtube!
Here’s our fantastic short documentary showing you exactly how our iconic LEGO bricks are made. Be prepared for all your questions to be be answered!
