As we move out of the busy pyro season, we’d like to thank all the clients that we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the summer on festivals, fundraisers, annual events, and special occasions public and private.  Communities the length of the country have enjoyed dozens of professional displays to cap off evenings of togetherness and family fun.

Traditonally summer has always been the busiest time of the year for us, but it needn’t be so.  The months outside daylight savings are great times to enjoy professional displays – the weather is often more settled and there isn’t the fire risk associated with summer events, and it gets dark nice and early so you don’t have to keep the kids up late to enjoy a display.  Getting outside during winter to enjoy fireworks over the Matariki season is becoming increasingly popular, which is fabulous to see.

The off season is when we start planning for the year ahead – manufacturing and importing new stock, servicing equipment, preparing quotes and streamlining our inhouse procedures. It’s also when we run our training program, teachning new people the art of pyrotechnics, and arranging refresher and upgrade courses to recertify experienced technicians.

On March 7th we’ll be running the first of our Introduction of Professional Pryotechnics courses for the year. This one day course is designed to give you an overview of the different types of pyro, the history and chemistry and fireworks, health and safety, the regulations, rigging and much more. If this is something that sounds like you, please do give us a call or email for more information. And if you have an event over winter –  indoor or outdoors – fireworks might just be the thing to brighten your day or night.
