Meadowville Technology Park is located in Chesterfield County just outside of Richmond, Virginia. The industrial park spans 1,262 acres.
In 2022, the LEGO Group broke ground for a 1.7 million-square-foot facility on a site of 340 acres. The facility will produce the LEGO products we know and love, and over the period of 10 years will create over 1,760 jobs.

The Lego Group had its groundbreaking ceremony on 4/13/2023. The Danish toymaker chose the Meadowville Technology Park as the future site of the facility. This will be the first manufacturing location for Lego in the United States.
Using shovels designed with Lego bricks, a ceremonial dig was performed to mark the groundbreaking. The ceremonial dig was performed by:
Kevin Carroll – Chair of the Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors
Governor Glenn Youngkin
Carsten Rasmussen – Chief Operations Officer for the Lego Group
Marisa Lago – The Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade
Governor Glenn Youngkin also signed two bills at the groundbreaking ceremony. Both bills are for companies that make precision plastic products and will award up to 56 million in grant funding between July 2027 and July 2035.
The event was truly fantastic, and even afforded a brief moment for two of the owners of George Nice & Sons, Inc. to meet with Governor Glenn Youngkin!
