Who We Are
Since 1949 the Atlas fireworks brand has been part of nearly every major pyrotechnic event in the Northeast including 4th of July displays, New Years Eve, Major Sporting Events, Homecomings, Corporate and Private displays. During this time Atlas has successfully participated in many US national and international competitions.

In 2012 and 2019 Atlas was also awarded Gold and Bronze “Jupiter” for the Montreal International Fireworks Competition. This competition is regarded internationally as the most prestigious in the world due to the high caliber of countries and companies represented.
Always on the leading edge, Atlas is a company that has pioneered the use of electronic, computer and wireless firing systems to provide the highest degree of safety and performance. With the modern use of computer software, Atlas utilizes Visual Show Director to create a 4D animation which is a highly technical and artistic approach to display design and presentation. This technology allows the designer to better understand their creation to provide the client with the best possible display. In addition to computer technology, Atlas has designed and developed a sophisticated assembly of portable firing trailers, modular mortar assemblies (Pyro Podz) and fully modular boat launched barges for rivers, lakes and inter-coastal waterways. In addition, portable firing trailers and Podz allow displays to be fired from sensitive areas in parks, athletic fields and golf courses while maintaining a high degree of safety. All of this and more allow Atlas to set the standard for pyrotechnic innovation and performance.
Over 600 years ago wealthy landowners entertained their guests by adding pyrotechnics to their parties. These displays were integrated with the actors and dancers hired to perform for the guests. These amazing displays were the beginnings of modern day fireworks.
