The home of pyrotechnics and special effects since 1977

Our Story

Le Maitre was established in 1977 and is still widely recognised as one of the world’s leading innovators in the pyro and FX field through the ongoing design, development and production of an exciting product portfolio of pyrotechnics, smoke, haze and flame machines and other special effects, some 45 years on.

As the founding father of encapsulated pyrotechnics with the launch of our world famous Pyroflash range over 30 years ago, we continue to inspire the entertainment industry with over 1,500 state-of-the-art products offering up endless possibilities for visual spectacles.  And from Disney theme parks to Broadway and West End theatres, iconic sports stadia to global music tours by top artists, our benchmark for excellence means our products are repeatedly chosen by clients ranging from big name brands to royalty. 

All product research, design and development takes place at our UK site in Peterborough and is also where our smoke, haze, flame and other special effects machines and pyrotechnics, including our renowned Pyroflash cartridges and Prostage II range of stage pyrotechnics, are made.  All sales and after sales service for our European, African, Middle Eastern and Asian customers is coordinated here from our head office.

Las Vegas, Nevada, is the base for our US office, Le Maitre USA LLC, and from here we service the American markets.  Our dedicated sales and technical team cover all the bases from product advice through to after sales service, backed up by extensive warehousing facilities.  And in 2017, we further strengthened our market presence through the creation of a second manufacturing base in Missouri, USA.
