Since 1979, we have traveled the globe for corporate clients, shooting shows across the United States, in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Dubai, Tokyo and the Caribbean. Beginning our career as a concert pyrotechnician, we have provided stunning effects for the BeeGees, Nazareth, Thin Lizzie, David Bowie, Point Blank, Styx, The Commodores, Reba McIntyre and ZZ Top.
Pyrotex has added their pyrotechnic magic to the silver screen in “Pure Country” and “Leap of Faith” and recently created a display for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. We have also graced the stage with local productions of Phantom of the Opera and the Nutcracker as well as touring the country with a Broadway production of the Wizard of Oz.
Our pyrotechnics have entertained large crowds for city events and private displays created for just two people on Valentine’s Day. Our longevity with our clients speaks volumes of the trust they have in our product and service. We have been lighting the Christmas tree at the Dallas Galleria for 21 years and produce over 30 July 4th shows across Texas including the most prominent country clubs in Dallas.
Pyrotex, Inc. was founded in 1979 by Randy Beckham, Creative Director and President. Derek Willingham serves as General Manager, Paige Mejia as Sales Manager and Patrick Mahaffey as Production Manager. Our headquarters are located in Fannin County, Texas, an hour Northeast of Dallas.
All of our 50 employees receive extensive annual training, are regularly drug tested, and are licensed by the State of Texas and the ATF. All drivers are Commercial Drivers with Hazardous Materials endorsements. We comply with NFPA-1123 and the International Fire Code.
Our company's goal is not to shoot as many shows as we can sell, but only those we can do best, with the least opportunity for liability. We select our customers just as much as they select us. Pyrotex will not bend or break any regulations to shoot a show, nor will we allow our customers to do so.
Every show is a work of art.
