Why Amscan?

We’re often asked why the company is called Amscan. It’s very simple; our founders were American and Scandinavian, hence Amscan.

That was in 1947, and since then we’ve grown substantially, with over 2000 people now employed in our worldwide wholesale divisions.


Amscan sales, warehouse and manufacturing facilities are located across the world. That means we’re never far from our customers and can offer a fast, knowledgeable and localised service.

Our UK headquarters and showroom are both located in Milton Keynes.

Amscan Inc.’s other worldwide locations include our corporate headquarters in Elmsford, NY, as well as our locations in China, Canada, Germany, Japan, Mexico, and Australia.

Inclusive of the UK, we have seven state-of-the-art distribution centres throughout the world and further showrooms in New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Toronto and Hong Kong.

With six manufacturing facilities in America, as well as others in Asia, Amscan UK is strongly positioned to deliver fantastic value and efficiencies to our customers.

Amscan is owned by Party City Holdco Inc, a listed company on the New York Stock Exchange.

Building On Success

Amscan is comprised of Amscan Inc., Grasslands Road, Anagram International (the largest manufacturer of metallic balloons in the world), Ya Otta Piñata (a leader in the piñata industry), and retail stores under the brand names Party City, Factory Card & Party Outlet, Halloween City, The Paper Factory and Party Delights.

In February 2011, Amscan acquired dress-up firm The Christy Group in the UK and renowned party supply company Riethmuller.

In 2013 we expanded our portfolio further and welcomed Party Delights to our family of companies. This was followed in 2015 with the acquistion of Travis by Design.
