Add Lego A/S to the list of companies that have transformed production to begin making protective medical equipment.
The global toymaker is now injection molding protective visors, rather than toy blocks, on six presses at its Billund, Denmark, headquarters factory, making 13,000 of them per day. It also says it can ramp up to 56,000 per day, if needed. The project included design and making tools.
In a video on its social media feed, Lego said 100 employees are working on the project. Lego will also be expanding the project to all of its plants, starting in Hungary.
Beyond that, Lego is donating $50 million to education programs.
