New Licensing Deal with HBO® Brings New Business to Montreal and Exciting New Products to Game of Thrones® Fans All Over the World
MONTREAL, Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Wrebbit Puzzles Inc., the iconic 3D puzzle maker, is proud to announce a new two-year, worldwide licensing agreement with HBO Licencing and Retail to produce and market puzzles of some of the most beloved landmarks from the blockbuster Game of Thrones® television series.
Internationally renowned for their Wrebbit 3D™ puzzles based on the Wizarding World™ (Harry Potter™) franchise, this new deal brings exciting new business to Wrebbit's already-booming production facility in eastern Montreal. All Wrebbit 3D™ puzzles are 100% designed and made in Quebec, with the Game of Thrones® agreement expected to further bolster business with the company's annual sales and international market penetration. Additional economic benefits are also slated to effect Wrebbit's suppliers, 90 percent of which are also locally based in Canada.
"We've always enjoyed a significant presence on the international market, especially in Europe. Now with the CETA agreement and our logistics hub in Antwerp, Belgium, this will ensure a wider and even timelier distribution of Wrebbit 3D™ Game of Thrones® puzzles worldwide, prior to upcoming Season 8 of the series", explains Jean Théberge, President of Wrebbit Puzzles Inc.
Wrebbit is in the design process for the first two Game of Thrones® puzzle models of Winterfell and Red Keep, slated for market in early 2019, just in time for the lead-up to the much-anticipated final season of the series later in the year in April. These models will include Wrebbit's trademark high definition graphics, featuring the striking realism that has become the new standard for visual quality, within the company's acclaimed tongue-and-groove technology that allows the pieces to interlock and assemble effortlessly.
