Patch ProductsThe founders of Patch Products have sold the company to private equity firm, Topspin Partners. Patch headquarters will stay in Beloit, Wisconsin and Bob Wann will remain as CEO.

The company publishes The Game of Things, Buzzword, and 5 Second Rule; distributes Perplexus mazes; makes the Lauri brand crepe-rubber puzzles; and recently took over manufacturing and sales of Stratego in the United States.

Wann indicated that Topspin’s financial resources will be used to further grow the company.
