Custom Built SFX

For the SFX connoisseur, Howard & Sons Pyrotechnicians will design and develop very special effects for your very special event

Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics are used to inventing and making adjustments to SFX equipment so that their use fits very specific requirements.

Our in-house workshop team of master pyrotechnicians can design and manufacture all manner of high-tech or more traditional equipment, working hand-in-hand with event planning teams to produce amazing, completely original special effects which meet all municipal and national safety guidelines.

We haven’t been the leading pyrotechnics company in Australia for nearly a hundred years by following the competition. We are the competition. Since 1922, we have gathered knowledge and shared family secrets that have made us a global leader in the fields of firework development, pyrotechnic research and product design. Howard & Sons are therefore the obvious choice for customised and personalised special effects, pyrotechnics and fireworks.

We have presented a huge number of ground-breaking displays using our custom designed and cutting-edge technology for huge international events. For choreography timed to a fraction of a second with fire and flame effects, laser displays, the best fireworks available in the country and a waterscreen to project your chosen message to a mesmerised audience, Howard & Sons can make it happen.

Alternatively, for an effect you can not achieve using generic equipment, Howard & Sons imagineers have the passion, knowledge and creativity to design the special effect of your choosing. Our team can design a tailored solution for a fashion show backdrop where both location and decoration need to match a specific message. We have even worked with photographers to design the right fireworks for the perfect backdrop. Howard & Sons are proud of their reputation as innovators in the field of pyrotechnics; our team of pyrotechnic perfectionists find it an honour to work together with our clients to create sophisticated custom-made displays.
