Danish toy company Lego said Tuesday it planned
to cut 380 jobs in the next two and a half years.
About 75 positions were to go this year, and 200 jobs in 2014, at the Billund plant in western Denmark, where the family-owned group plans to discontinue packaging and processing operations.
Lego, known worldwide for its plastic building blocks, last year celebrated its 80th anniversary.
The firm planned to focus on processing and packaging at its plants in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Mexico.
About 3,500 of the toy maker's 11,000-strong workforce are employed at Billund.
