Celebrating 100 Years of Gibsons

1st January 2019

2019 is very special year for our company as it marks 100 years since Gibsons was founded Harry Percy Gibson in 1919.

After securing a loan of £500 from the bank, Harry Percy (our MD's great-grandfather) launched H P Gibson & Sons Ltd. Originally, we made our name with the ‘HPG’ brand of indoor games such as L’Attaque and Dover Patrol, which were huge sellers before and after the Second World War. We then went on to launch jigsaw puzzles in the 1980s and our business has grown from strength to strength ever since!

We would like to thank you everyone who has been a part of our story so far, from our jigsaw puzzlers, to our suppliers, our retailers and warehouse partners and everyone in between.

Our team works hard all year to bring you extra-special products and 2019 is no different. From a brand-new children’s range, to new contemporary jigsaw designs, our 2019 is crammed full of fantastic puzzles, games and gifts, so please peruse our website to find your favourite.

We are also delighted to be the UK’s best performing manufacturer in adult puzzles* and are proud to be the home of the thickest 1000 piece jigsaws on the UK market.

2019 is a year of celebration, so thank you again for your custom and supporting us. Here's to 2019!
