Our story

Welcome to the home of the Puzzle Workshop. Christopher Pitt began making the REVOMAZE series in December 2008. 

 

The Puzzle Workshop is a small family business that produces items called 'REVOMAZE', 'REVOMAZE Lite', 'VAULTMAZE', and 'HEXDUKO'.

 

We produce high-quality products internally in Askam-in-Furness, England. We have our office in a small industrial unit in Ulverston, from where we communicate with our global clientele.

 

Furthermore, we develop products in-house as well as working with suppliers to provide both good quality and challenging puzzles for our client base to experience.

 

We hope you will enjoy browsing our site to learn more information. If you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact us and we will be in touch as soon as we can.

The beginnings

Ashton Pitt Ltd brings ideas to life via problem-solving, producing well-engineered mechanical metal puzzles.

 

From its inception in 2008, when engineer Christopher Pitt was inspired to create the REVOMAZE from an event that happened while doing his engineering apprenticeship, he made the wrong cut in his plastic screwdriver handle.

 

This error later sparked the idea of inventing hidden mazes in a sleeve, starting with the Blue. The rules were simple: make minimal components and allow quick assembly, while offering a real challenge to the puzzler that exceeds their expectation. 

Since then, the range has expanded to over 20 designs and is followed by a passionate worldwide client base. The community is growing, and we have extended our family of products by introducing the VAULTMAZE, 19 mazes that are each sliced into 8 rings; the goal is to find, build, and solve the mazes in order to enter a competition and win an incredible prize of the SUPER GOLIATH PUZZLE (20-ring), which is nearly three times the size of a standard REVOMAZE.

 

In late December 2023, we released the REVOMAZE in a 'Lite' version as suggested by our customers after a survey, which is lower in weight and price, with smooth play and a pin on the outside that pushes all the way up once solved so cannot be lost. 

 

The new Lite version is aimed at younger and older puzzlers to introduce the REVOMAZE concept, along with giving our current users a new challenge as well as allowing them to share their experience with family and friends.
