Pyrotechnic Innovations, also widely known as Pyro Innovations, was founded by Mike Tockstein in 2002, and is dedicated to providing a means of entering into the field of pyrotechnics, to communicate the cutting edge standards in pyrotechnics, and all associated training. This is accomplished through field exercises and our extensive Fireworks Training pages, which include tons of information, with step by step video explanations you won't find anywhere else, on the methods used to set up a professional fireworks display.
Pyrotechnic Innovations formally partnered with Pyro Spectaculars in 2013 to provide Pyro Spectaculars exclusive access to the personnel and training resources of Pyrotechnic Innovations.
Everyone associated with Pyro Innovations gets cutting edge training and experience with the setup and firing of professional fireworks displays. We are particularly fond of using video for training and to give the public insight on what its like to put on a professional fireworks display.
Pyrotechnic Innovations is not a fireworks display company, but a crew of professional pyrotechnicians who adhere to the highest standards possible. We are constantly training new fireworks crew that come through our website; however, only the few that have been with us for a long time, are dedicated, have done an outstanding job, plan to work for us for the foreseeable future, and have gone above and beyond in some way are listed here.
We have been interviewed and featured in numerous television, internet, and newspaper articles. Our pictures and videos have appeared in television productions, plays, school textbooks, and been used to support our troops overseas on military bases and ships. We receive emails from people all over the world. Feel free to contact us with anything you would like see added to our fireworks web site!
