Bill Ferrell Co. Expands Its Confetti Effects Portfolio With the Acquisition of Canada's Kabuki.
Sun Valley, CA / January 2017— Kabuki, the originator of long-flutter confetti design and the CO2 handheld launcher has merged with Times Square Confetti, the artistic confetti effects division of Bill Ferrell Co. The acquisition of the New Brunswick-based Kabuki gives Times Square Confetti a new international client base for the live event trade and online consumer-direct sales.
"Kabuki started it all," said new parent company owner Bill Ferrell. "Back in 1985, they set out to create dramatic, concert-size confetti for ZZTop. They shook up the old, rag-tag parade cliche and gave it class."
Kabuki devised and standardized the rectangle known today as "slowfall" confetti, and mechanized the precise cut of exceptionally beautiful serpentine streamers. The company experimented with materials, combining "metallic" PVC and biodegradable tissues to create visual depth for TV and film. The Kabuki CO2 handheld confetti and streamer cannon quickly took hold with pros and partiers alike, with Blue Man Group strapping six together for a dynamic, onstage repeat launch system.
The full line of Kabuki products can now be purchased at factory-direct prices on the Times Square Confetti website.
