The story so far
Firework Professionals has been designing and firing professional firework shows in New Zealand since the 1970s.
Owned by Anthony Lealand, Firework Professionals is staffed by a small group of highly experienced pyro enthusiasts based in Christchurch. Dozens of trained pyrotechnicians throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific support the full time team. Anthony is an EPA registered test certifier who writes for international publications and gives a range of public lectures and talks about the fireworks industry. In 2010 he featured in an episode of the TV show ‘Extraordinary Kiwis’.
Firework Professionals supply and manufacture an extensive range of indoor and outdoor pyrotechics, as well as special effects for the film and TV industry. As well, we provide local technical support for touring international shows such as Disney on Ice and AC/DC. In addition to our long history of producing fantastic firework shows, FPL run comprehensive pyrotechnician training courses.
The international pyrotechnics community recognise the work we do. Our reputation for excellence has lead to invitations to compete in international competitions as well as secured major contracts for events in NZ and the Pacific Islands.
Firework Professionals aren’t part-time hobbyists, we’re a full time team, available to provide fireworks displays 365 days a year. While the fortnight around Guy Fawkes is our busiest time, there other peak times, such as New Year’s and Matariki. Booking shows outside peak times can be advantageous to clients.
No matter what the celebration, a firework display or confetti effects will add something extra to your event. Have a look around our site and gallery, and talk to us today to discuss your pyro solutions.
