LEGO Sets New Guiness World Record

When thinking of the world’s largest tire manufacturers, companies such as Firestone, Continental or Michelin may come to mind. But, it turns out that LEGO, is indeed, the worlds largest manufacturer of tires annually, according to the the 2012 Guiness World Records. 2012 is a very fitting year for LEGO to receive the World Record, since it the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the LEGO tire. With nearly half of all LEGO sets featuring tires, LEGO factories must produce the pieces 24 hours a day, 365 days a year leading to a daily production of 870,000 units and more than 318 million pieces annually.
