The Pyrotechnics Guild International has been around since 1969 and was founded by Max P. Vander Horck, who was a publisher of a monthly fireworks newsletter called “American Pyrotechnist.”
The PGI was born in order to educate and inform the masses, the media, and the government about the safe use of fireworks and ensure that fireworks would be there for all to enjoy forever more.
There are now over 3,500 members and growing stronger. The PGI annual meets continue to be one of the most impressive gatherings of pyrotechnists anywhere in the world, except of course, when the Epic Fireworks team have their lunch break.
