SENIOR FIRER

Mark Burden

Mark started out with Pyrotex in 2015 and quickly moved his way up the various levels to become a senior firer in less than two years. His keen eye for detail along with his enthusiasm swiftly made him a highly valued member of the team, often showing our trainees the ropes on our smaller displays.

Mark also joined the international team when we went to Knokke Heist and was a great guy to have on-site, cracking jokes at every opportunity yet working hard under the challenging conditions. He also helps prepare our bigger shows and is a great person to have in the ranks at Pyrotex.

Q&A With Mark

As a kid I used to do my own firework displays at home, powered only by Standard fireworks in a tin with a torch and at arms length, then as I got older I started working as a firer for another fireworks company before finally moving to Pyrotex Fireworx.

Thorpe Park, we blew up a fire engine and set fire to a huge effigy of Jedward.

Pytorex is the best pyro company I’ve worked for in 15 years. It’s like a family to me.

Teamwork makes the Dream Work.
