ABOUT PYROTEK

For decades we have helped our clients deliver lasting memories to their audiences. We are the people behind the scenes, constantly working on the cutting edge to create awe and inspiration at some of entertainment’s most spectacular events. We developed the art of using indoor pyrotechnics to take performances to the next level. We revolutionized our industry with flame systems that have become the global standard. We’ve helped our clients build visionary laser and atmospheric effects into their performances, and we have turned water into an airborne visual medium. We count the world’s best known and innovative artists among our valued clients.

At Pyrotek we have a deep passion for what we do. We know when our clients contact us they are looking for something more for their show or event than pyro, a flame device, a fog effect or a laser. They have an artistic vision and are seeking a collaborative partner. A partner who offers creative and proactive thinking combined with professional expertise and depth. A partner who can help give their vision life.

Pyrotek’s goal is to deliver world class solutions with the highest standards of professionalism, accountability and efficiency on a global scale. We have an over- riding sense of purpose in what we do and what our clients are striving to achieve: timeless moments for their audience. A great show can change the lives of people, events and histories.

At Pyrotek our mission is to push the limits of our craft so that our clients can keep Bringing Live Alive.
