"Currently all molding is done in the company's main headquarters in Denmark."

They put the word "currently" in there because its already been announced that they are moving their operations from Denmark, the US, and Switzerland to Mexico & The Czech Republic. So, if your kids find that the new bricks don't fit together quite as nicely as the old ones did, you'll know why.
