Asmodee UK completes acquisition of Coiledspring Games

Published on: 28th March 2018

Coiledspring will continue to operate as a separate entity following the acquisition. 

Asmodee UK has purchased fellow UK games distributor Coiledspring Games. The change in ownership, which is effective immediately, sees Coiledspring join the Asmodee Group of games companies across the world.

Founded in 2004, with just one game and one puzzle, Coiledspring have gone on to become a leading name in UK games distribution, carrying a wide range of products also including jigsaws, puzzles and soft toys.

Following the acquisition, Coiledspring will continue to operate as a separate entity, run at arms length from Asmodee UK’s current operations.

Asmodee UK’s managing director, Steve Buckmaster commented:“We’re delighted to welcome Coiledspring Games to the Asmodee Group. We’ve always thought very highly of the team and the work they do, so it’s great to have them on board with us.”

Coiledspring’s Roger Martin added: “We’re very excited to be joining the Asmodee Group, and I am sure this will bring with it some big opportunities for Coiledspring Games. Being part of Asmodee presents us with a fantastic platform for future business”.
