Why choose Starburst
A Starburst-produced fireworks display is a long-remembered
emotional experience that titillates your senses: the
"whoomp" of a shell shooting through the heavens flip-flopping
your stomach with rushing butterflies; the sprays and
splatters of colour and light filling your vision, the
"booms and bangs" rocking your feet; the pulsation of
power and force surging through your body, the gasps,
"oohs" and "aahs" of sheer amazement.
Your audience will be spellbound by the sheer wonderment
of a Starburst fireworks display. We are the leaders
in the fireworks business in South Africa. We have been
established since 1943 and put on more than 100 productions
each year. We have fired displays on land, on sea, in
the middle of a lake, from the tops of buildings and
in indoor venues. We are one of the few companies that
can provide a full indoor display and outdoor fireworks
display choreographed to music.
Why Choose Starburst To Do Your Display?
No other company of our scale dedicates itself entirely
to display fireworks. Our best sales tools are the opinions
of those who have used our services. Some of those testimonials
are attached and while they represent the quality of
our work, they also provide us with the greatest reward
- the pride of producing spectacular displays.
As direct importers, we have the advantage over our
competitors in the quality and variety of fireworks
we are able to provide. We do not rely on local distributors
for our fireworks.
Every display is treated as a new challenge; we do
not have set packages. Our approach is always flexible
and friendly and you can be sure of our personal attention
and an original display expertly designed to get the
best for your audience from the budget and site available.
We consistently offer imagination and quality performances
and at the same time our highest standard of professionalism
and an acute awareness of safety requirements.
