In 1978, two entrepreneurs in New Hampshire started a small poster company that evolved into White Mountain Puzzles. Founders Cronan Minton and Ted Wroblewski are still involved but have turned over the day to day operations and ownership to their respective sons, Sean and Colin.
White Mountain Puzzles has grown into one of the top puzzle brands in the United States!
By sticking with the same business for over 40 years, White Mountain Puzzles has maintained relationships with thousands of accounts, manufacturers, printers, designers, sales representatives, and dozens of talented artists.
Every White Mountain Puzzle is manufactured in America. Every year our quality improves. All our puzzles are interlocking and made of sturdy blue chipboard on recycled paper. Our 1000 piece puzzles are the LARGEST IN THE INDUSTRY, measuring 24" x 30" when finished.
Due to our rural location, we’ve tried to stay ahead of the pack — to create puzzles that are more original and colorful... more educational... more entertaining...and, in all cases, immediately recognizable as WHITE MOUNTAIN PUZZLES.
In 2018 we represented New Hampshire as one of only 50 companies - one from each state - invited to The White House for the Made in America Showcase. For the past 5 years we have been named one of the top FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESSES in New Hampshire by NEW HAMPSHIRE BUSINESS MAGAZINE. In 2021 NH Business Magazine also named us the 5th fastest growing private company in NH.
We take pride in the competence of our staff. Many of our customers are familiar with the friendly voices answering the phones in Jackson — manager Kimberly Hotarek. Account Managers Melinda Hamilton, Suzannah Stokes and Vanessa Cummings in wholesale, and Abram Jacobs and Peggy Maynard in sales. They bend over backwards to make sure every customer is satisfied.
Perhaps puzzle designer Charlie Girard summed up the spirit of our company best:
“It’s almost as if we’re all part of an extended family. After working in big and small corporations for over 30 years, you come to realize that there is more to a company than bricks and mortar, dollars and cents, or Fortune 500 status. To me White Mountain Puzzles is a great example of what is right about American companies and how people are treated as part of a team.”
