The firm also enjoys a strong presence in Poland, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada and the US.

Following the acquisition, the two companies will continue to operate as separate entities, with Pressman developing its own products, but employing Goliath’s R&D, purchasing and TV campaigns internationally, reports Kidscreen.
