In 1981, Gerhard Gollnest and Fritz-Rüdiger Kiesel founded what is now the largest toy company in northern Germany. They are now supported in the management by Frank Jungclaus and Thorsten Koss. More than 450 goki employees worldwide are busy making childhood and children's rooms more colourful. More than 2,000 different products form one of the most diverse ranges in the toy industry. At the heart of Goki’s range are the goki, HEIMESS and HOLZTIGER brands.
Goki is also socially committed worldwide. For example, schools are being built in developing countries such as Mali, Peru and Uganda. There, children who previously had to work in mines, among other places, are given the chance to receive an education. In goki's own factory in China, western standards prevail in terms of occupational health and safety. The employees receive wages that are far above the collective wage agreement. It goes without saying that no goki toys are built by children.
