Firework Professionals – the story so far
Firework Professionals is a second generation pyrotechnic display fireworks company based in New Zealand. We’ve been producing pyrotechnic displays and supplying quality commercial fireworks for over forty years now.
Founded in the 1970’s, Firework Professionals is a group of highly skilled and experienced pyrotechnic experts and enthusiasts based in Otautahi-Christchurch. Dozens of trained crews and colleagues throughout New Zealand support the full-time team.
Our work includes producing professional fireworks displays and pyromusicals, and supplying indoor and outdoor pyrotechnics for commercial displays and special effects for the film and TV industry. We provide qualified, experienced local technical support for international touring productions and concerts.
For those interested in learning the art, Firework Professional offer comprehensive training courses for all skill levels – from novices to experienced techs needing certification, upgrades and refresher courses to keep up with the latest techniques, innovations and regulations. Firework Professionals is proud to still be at the forefront of the NZ pyrotechnics industry.
We’re passionate about our work, and our experience, knowledge and reputation has lead to us hosting and attending international conferences, training overseas students, contributing to industry research and publications, and competing in international firework musical competitions. In 2018 we travelled to Germany for the Hannover International Fireworks Competition and won second prize against four local teams from Europe.
Firework Professionals is a full-time team, providing firework displays 365 days a year. The fortnight around November 5th is traditionally our busiest time, along with New Year’s Eve, and more recently Matariki, and we encourage communities to to celebrate milestones and special events in all seasons with professional firework displays.
Professional fireworks are more affordable than you might have thought. A fireworks display, special effects, fireworks simulators or confetti and streamer can add something special to your event. Contact us to discuss your next special occasion.
