The THX News Team
At THX News we have a team of managers on three continents: UK, USA & Asia. Our team includes family members, former key personnel, consultants and freelancers. Currently product distribution happens from the UK and Tucson, Arizona.
The Story of THX News
The business originally started on a market stall in London, England in 1990. The official launch was in February 1991 with the foundation of Golden Books LTD.
Within a year we opened the first of 5 book stores starting from North Kent, UK. Eventually we ran three stores in Kent (UK), one store in Camden Passage, London and a store in Kansas City, Kansas.
Goldien Books Group | Re-Branding
The owner and founder of the Golden Books Group is Ivan Golden. He has been the CEO throughout the businesses 30 year history. The original name of the company was Golden Books Ltd though this changed in 1996 to The Golden Books Group. At that time the company had recently launched their first bookstore in Kansas City, Kansas and there was a name clash with the children’s books range published by Random House.
With times changing, in 1999 we closed the five bricks and mortar bookshops to go extensively online. Originally the company had 6 employees listing products on Ebay, Amazon and on our five websites. These websites made up the original Golden Books Group.
Recent Company History
The Golden Books Group stopped trading in 2012 after Mr. Golden suffered a serious health problem. In 2016 I had recovered enough to re-open the company under the name Goldiers LLC. The company launched with a series of websites in 2018 and 2019 which included LoversBee (Asian/Western dating), SublimeBTC (Cryptocurrency news service) and RedSurveys (macro earnings).
THX News was officially launched in May 2020. SublimeBTC and RedSurveys were initially launched in 2020. However both websites are still in the development stages. SublimeBTC will be re-launched in the fall of 2021. There is no set date to re-launch RedSurveys yet.
