Helvetiq bolsters wooden games portfolio with Steffan Spiele acquisition
Helvetiq has acquired the wooden games publisher Steffen Spiele.
“Steffen Spiele’s commitment to creating beautiful, eco-friendly wooden games aligns perfectly with our own values and ambitions,” said Hadi Barkat, CEO of Helvetiq.
“We are thrilled to welcome Steffen Spiele into the Helvetiq family, and we look forward to leveraging our experience and resources to further expand the reach and impact of Steffen Spiele’s unique and enduring products.”
Steffen Mühlhäuser, CEO and founder of Steffen Spiele, added: “That Steffen Spiele has found a new home at Helvetiq is a stroke of luck for me.
“We have the same standards for quality, originality, and sustainability in games. I am convinced that Helvetiq will continue and enrich my line of games, in an appropriate manner with wonderful new ideas. I do not see any other publisher in the scene that would have been a better fit to carry on my heritage.”
Helvetiq’s team will work closely on Steffen Spiele’s games to optimise their production processes, marketing strategies and distribution channels. Steffen’s portfolio will continue to live on, while new games will be launched as early as the next Essen Spiel in October.
