pyro facilitiesWith an iron-clad commitment to highest level of service to our customers and all governing fire authorities, we use the finest resources in the industry to provide a safe, cost-efficient, and, well… spectacular fireworks show each time, every time, all the time.
Pyro Spectacular's Resources
Facilities — We operate throughout the world with offices and facilities based in California. Our principal California facilities are located in Rialto, San Diego, Rocklin, March Air Force Base, Madera, Half Moon Bay and McClellan. In addition we maintain facilities in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Hawaii, and Texas.
In addition we have a state-of-the-art proprietary digital recording and music production facility on site available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
People — We boast the largest roster of seasoned pyrotechnic professionals on the West Coast. Our 75+ employees bring an aggregate of over 1,000 years of experience to each and every show. We are known for our passion, our pride, and our professionalism.
Sales & Customer Service — Every Pyro Spectaculars by Souza production has a Show Producer and Customer Sales Representative assigned to ensure that proper coordination is maintained with all fire and other regulatory agencies, that the customer’s show is created anew with innovative “from the ground up” design, and that there are no surprises for anyone except the viewing audience who will be amazed at the artistry of our show.
Licensed Operators & Crew — Through our unique-in-the-industry Pyrotechnic Passport™ program, we develop and maintain a roster of over 1,000 operators and/or crew members, many of which have literally decades of experience working with us. We have a full-time Operator Support Department that ensures that all of our drivers, operators and crew are not only there on-time, ready to work, but that they have all the resources needed to efficiently set-up, install, rig, and fire the show.
pyro teamTraining — Working with the State Fire Marshal’s office, we have developed a curriculum of instruction that meets or exceeds all applicable laws. Our training includes not only Licensed Pyrotechnic Operators, but also Haz Mat driver training. We conduct regular in-class and hands-on seminars with stringent class requirements, designated as Pyro University 101™, Pyro University 201™, and Pyro University 301™.
Product — Like every aspect of our work, we take our selection of pyrotechnic products and devices very seriously. The finest craftsman cannot turn hundreds of spare watch parts into a Rolex. As show producers we are unrelenting in our pursuit of the best products, and never confuse quantity with quality.
World-wide Resources — Through our international connections we have unique access to the latest, most innovative and finest products being created today. Our regular factory inspections and product demonstrations take us to thirteen countries around the world. Every shell and effect is hand-selected by a member of the Souza family.
Sousa™ brand Fireworks — Through the years we have found that some of the very best or most distinctive fireworks simply didn’t exist. To fill that gap we created the Sousa™ brand of fireworks. Custom made to our exact specifications, these very special effects cannot be replicated and can turn an “ooo” and an “ahh” into an “awe.”
HD Fireworks — Another first for the fireworks industry was created by Pyro Spectaculars by Souza: HD Fireworks. Using some of the same shells and effects found in our traditional shows, these productions are designed with the wide-screen camera in mind — perfect for broadcast situations. We paint the sky both vertically and horizontally.pyro shells
State of the Art Firing Equipment — Pyro Spectaculars by Souza has pioneered the use of ever-increasingly sophisticated firing systems. With failsafe technology we regularly create safer, more precise and synchronous (to music) shows.
Safety record — Having received commendations from local, state and federal agencies we are proud of our safety record. When surveying a site, creating a show, clearing a fall-out zone, transporting fireworks, setting up and firing a show, safety our first consideration.pyro safety
Full-Service pyrotechnic production company — We do not sell fireworks. We are a full-service fireworks display company providing a variety of effects for all types of events; indoors and outdoors, theatrical and stage. Our extensive experience, performance achievements, safety standards, and reliability are a testimony to the thousands of satisfied Pyro Spectaculars customers.
Commitment to working closely with Fire Services & Sponsors — On every show our objective is to amaze our audience, accomplish our sponsor’s financial and other goals, and to do so in a safe, well-organized, efficient, and professional manner. To do that we seek to not be a vendor, but as a colleague in ensuring that from budgets to bombasts, every production meets or exceed all of our combined expectations.
