Welcome to the "new" Pyrodigital®. We at Innovative Pyrotechnik GmbH are very proud to carry on the legacy of Ken and Bob Nixons’ magnificent Pyrodigital® firing system. Pyrodigital® was the first digital firing system in the world. To pioneer digital firing, Innovative Pyrotechnik GmbH was founded in 1994 as a firework display and special effect company. As one of the very first Pyrodigital® users, we introduced digital firing to the European Market. With Pyrodigital® as our backbone, we are looking back to a great story of success including large-scale pyro musicals, special effect shows and concert tours, e.g. the world tour of the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Tina Turner.
The rock-solid FM3 firing module and the field controller of the “good old” Pyrodigital® have been - and still are - some of the most reliable pieces of equipment we ever worked with. It is our vision to take this technology to the next level and to set new standards in the future of high-professional firing systems. We have already introduced the new FM-A firing module and are looking forward to introduce the new FC-A field controller.
When, in 2016, we introduced our new FM-A firing module to Ken Nixon he was delighted with the quality our young and talented engineers Dipl.-Ing. Marcel Berner and M.Sc. Salvador Martinez achieved. Inspired by Ken and Bob Nixons’ inventions Marcel started studying to become an electronics engineer and is now about to finish his PhD. During his work at the University of Stuttgart, Marcel met Salvador, a talented and ambitious young hardware designer, who joined us in 2014.
Due to Ken Nixon’s wish to retire, his long friendship with our CEO Joachim Berner and his trust in Marcel’s and Salvador’s abilities, Ken offered Innovative Pyrotechnik GmbH to carry on the Pyrodigital® firing system. Being absolutely overwhelmed and deeply honored by Ken´s offer, and after several great discussions we finally agreed to the unforeseeable opportunity. So, this is the story of how it came that on the 1st of January 2017 Pyrodigital® became a part of Innovative Pyrotechnik GmbH.
For us as the “new” Pyrodigital® it is our mission to provide your costumers highly reliable products and to support them with our technical knowledge. We want to give you the technology to realize our visions.
