Our main Fireworks Suppliers
Our years of experience in selling fireworks has led us to source our own range of speciality fireworks. With the demise in recent years of some large importers in the UK we have found several gaps that exist in current importers product ranges. Therefore we had had produced for us several items to fill those gaps. Concentrating on only premium effects we have produced a range of fireworks that craete the effects we require rather than working from a price driven strategey. However by sourcing direct from the factories in China the resulting price has been much lower than it would have been had we bought the product from a UK importer.
Britain's oldest firework company. Standard Fireworks was the brainchild of Yorkshire draper James Greenhalgh. Established in 1891, Standard Fireworks moved to its Crosland Hill site in Huddersfield in 1910 where it now covers over 100 acres. Standard specialise in fireworks with a good mix of colours & effects aimed at family entertainment.
Black Cat Fireworks.
Black Cat were one of the first companies to introduce Chinese fireworks to the British public.
In 1998 they purchased Standard Fireworks and moved to Standard's Huddersfield site.
Black Cat have remained at the forefront of display firework development, their products are distinctively different than many products on the UK market. Black Cat specialise in larger display quality fireworks with unusual effects.
Men Shun Fireworks.
Menshun Fireworks are one of world's largest suppliers of consumer pyrotechnics. They have been making fireworks for generations and have recently moved to a new purpose built factory occupying 800 acres in Hunan China.
Their employees have been making fireworks for generations and are proud to bring you direct access to some of the world's highest quality pyrotechnics. Men Shun are renowned for their outstanding value for money and specialise in larger display quality fireworks. Men Shun closed down in the Spring of 2009 and several of their employees now work for the new Cosmic Fireworks (UK) Ltd.
Although today Kimbolton Fireworks is the market leader in firework production and operator fired displays, the company started from humble beginnings. Founded in 1964, the company founder, Reverend Ron Lancaster had a fascination for fireworks and chemistry from his very early years growing up in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
This historical centre of the UK fireworks industry saw Ron experimenting with pyrotechnic devices and helping to organise displays for the local community during the Second World War, at a time when fireworks were not available. In later years Ron was appointed as Chaplain and taught chemistry at Kimbolton School in Cambridgeshire where his passion for fireworks grew and he carried out extensive research for the firework industry from his newly constructed workshops.
As the reputation of the Reverend Lancaster's fireworks and displays grew, Kimbolton Fireworks Ltd was formed. Kimbolton Fireworks remains at the core, a family owned business with a commitment to deliver the highest quality products and service, currently occupying a large modern purpose built factory, just outside the village of Kimbolton. Kimbolton specialise in high quality large & small fireworks and have won many awards for them.
Vulcan/Shogun (Inter Oriental Fireworks)
The SHOGUN brand of fireworks was first introduced to the US market in 1998 by Inter-Oriental Fireworks
(established in 1974). Over the years, Shogun has become a brand that is known for its reliability, quality and innovation.
What initially began as a range of popular generic Chinese fireworks resurrected with better design, packaging and improved performance, has now evolved into one of China's most respected brands. Vulcan/Shogun are renowned for the high quality of their barrages.
Brothers Pyrotechnics (UK) Ltd. is a member of the Brothers International Group. They are part of a growing international presence of the Brothers brand which originated in Beihai China in 1995. Brothers (UK) was established in 2006 to strengthen the brand in the UK. Brothers International Group is a leading manufacturer, exporter and distributor of consumer fireworks.
From a lone Chinese entity they have grown through strategic acquisitions and partnerships to become a global group of companies; the parent company in Beihai with subsidiaries and partners in China, Japan and Europe. Brothers specialise in top quality effects in their fireworks.
The latest addition to our extensive range of suppliers. Absolute have several products conforming to the new European regulations and hence have a range of spectacular garden fireworks tested for a viewing distance of 8m. Absolute's mesh boxing is probably the finest available and is ceratainly a lot easier to open than many. They have introduced a folding stick on their large rockets which means that they do not take up as much space in storage.
Fireworks International have grown to be one of our major suppliers of fireworks. They have many unique products in their range and they are one of the few suppliers of large rockets. Their introduction of the Pyromesh packaging system has enabled them to supply products that other companies are unable to. Fireworks International produce our range of bespoke large rocket packs ensuring that we are at the forefront of firework suppliers to the display organiser.
Following the closing down of Men Shun Fireworks in Spring 2009 many of their employees went to work for the new Cosmic Fireworks (UK) Ltd (which took over from the old Cosmic Group). Their brands include ASTRA, GOLDEN LION, FLASH and NG (Next Generation). With the restructuring of the company in 2009 we have found them to be more adaptable to our needs and are now able to produce packs to our specific requirements and the influence of the ex Men Shun staff has resulted in some great deals that we have been able to pass on.
