Phoenix has it’s main office in Kent, and over the years has expanded into new offices across the country. The Manchester base has been going for over 20 years, and the West Country base started in January 2019. This enables Phoenix to do displays across the whole country.
Safety is a by-word within our profession, with more regulations than the Nuclear industry we have a lot of interested people to keep satisfied. Enshrined in that culture is Phoenix’s need to maintain the highest possible safety standards.
Planning for a successful display is an absolute must. The display you see on the evening is the culmination of a long and detailed exercise in fireworks selection, music selection, layout and of course design. Once these elements are brought together the fireworks are fused and put onto frames for display. This process can take weeks to complete.
In 2019, Phoenix Fireworks also acquired the long established and respected Kimbolton Fireworks. Phoenix and Kimbolton will run alongside each other, with Phoenix specialising in displays and Kimbolton in retail and trade sales.
