Suomen Ilotulitus Oy

After a summer break, the International Fireworks Competition entered the next round with a true premiere: on 22 August, Suomen Ilotulitus Oy will was the very first Finnish team to take part in the International Fireworks Competition.

The company is based in Lohja but also has a branch in Liuyang Hunan, the capital city of the fireworks industry. These pyrotechnic experts are well known throughout Finland as the country’s largest fireworks importer. They also enjoy an excellent international reputation.

With more than 60 years’ experience, the company has already set off 10,000 fireworks. Every year, the Finnish pyrotechnicians stage around 200 shows.

At Herrenhausen Gardens in August, designer Sami Tammi demonstrated what he has learned in the course of his work as designer, project manager and pyrotechnician in over 2000 shows all over the globe and over the course of 20 years. The Finnish team’s repertoire ranges from shows for the International Shanghai Music Fireworks Festival (2005), the World Rally Championship in Finland (2010) and competing in the Chelyabinsk International Fireworks Competition, to first prizes at the Yekaterinburg Fireworks Festival in Russia and at the Samobor International Fireworks Festival in Croatia (2012).
