Leading games and puzzles company, Jumbodiset Group is to merge with British toy company, James Galt & Co.

The collaboration marries two of the toy industry’s well recognised and respected names, and will deliver significant growth opportunities across a robust, well recognised and distinct portfolio of puzzles, creative play lines and award-winning games.

John McDonnell – currently md of Galt Toys – will head up the UK arm of the business, which will continue with well known British brand names, James Galt and Jumbo.

Juan Ferrer, executive chairman of Jumbodiset Group, added: “Galt’s reputation for the finest quality toys and obvious passion for our industry aligns with our own group company values making for a perfect symbiotic match in which, together, we can significantly add value across all our activities and continue to strengthen our mutual excellence and long standing customer relationships.”
