First, I would like to start by saying…we made it!! We made it through the crazy month of July!  There’s still plenty of summer left and lots of firework displays to go, but we made it through our busiest season of the year.  That being said, we would like to say thanks to all our wonderful employees, families, friends, technicians, and most importantly our customers! You guys are the best!

We hope everyone got to watch some spectacular fireworks this year!!

The chemistry behind it is truly interesting!  To find out more about this amazing chemistry, check our this in depth video from Dr. John A. Conkling is a Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus at Washington College.   Find out just how chemistry works to help us create thrilling fireworks displays!!
