Galt Toys and Jumbodiset Group confirm merger

Collaboration marries two of the toy industry’s well recognised and respected names.

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.

Galt will combine its board games, creative play and toys portfolio with the UK’s leading puzzle brands such as Wasgij, Falcon de luxe and Puzzle Mates.

“Jumbodiset has built considerable brand recognition and loyalty internationally over many decades and so I’m thrilled our collaboration will enable us to leverage our distinct brand names, while delivering enhanced and extensive product offerings and efficiencies which will hugely benefit our existing and new audiences on an international scale,” John commented.

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.”
