Goliath acquires Endless Games

Goliath has added to its global core portfolio of games and puzzles with the acquisition of Endless Games.

“This is Goliath’s fourth North American, and eleventh global acquisition in the last seven years,” says Jochanan Golad, Goliath’s CEO. “Endless Games will continue to operate out of its New Jersey office this autumn, with plans to fully integrate into Goliath’s distribution network by Q1 2022,” says David Norman, President of Goliath’s North American office. “We are also pleased to announce that Brian Turtle has agreed to join Goliath’s management team to help drive our business forward.”

Endless Games’ Kevin McNulty commented: “I’m thrilled to have Goliath carry on the great legacy that Mike Gasser, Brian Turtle and the rest of our team have built over the last 25 years. It feels great to sell our business to a company that excels at marketing to maximise the potential of our products.”

Goliath was founded in 1980 and is one of the few remaining family-owned global toy and game companies. It is the creator, manufacturer and distributor of a broad range of products, including Wahu, Sequence, Rummikub, Phlat Ball and Tri-Ominos. The firm has seen substantial growth with the acquisitions of Pressman Toy, JAX and Tucker Toys in the US, Vivid Toy Group in the UK, MacDue in Italy, Crown & Andrews and Britz ’n’ Pieces/Wahu in Australia, Modelco in France and Elephanta in New Zealand.
