Hape and Marbel strengthen position in UK for 2018

Published on: 20th December 2017

In 2018 Marbel will continue to work with Pink Poppy, Nanoblock, and Relevant Play, whilst also focusing on Hape and new brand Käthe Kruse.

Christoph Bettin, MD of Marbel, commented: “This allows us to really concentrate on the brands that Hape and Marbel wish to gain significant market success with. I want to place on record my thanks for the brands we will no longer be working with and wish them all the best in the future.”

Christoph Bettin is currently MD of Marbel, whilst also being Hape global marketing director.

Marbel was acquired in 2017 by Hape Toys.

Marbel Toys was formed in 2002 and distributes numerous leading international toy brands into the UK and Irish markets.
