Winner 2017 edition, shot fires on Monday 24
The company’s founder, José Luis Giménez Privado, born in Valencia and a pyrotechnic expert by vocation, worked in the design and displays area of one of the most important firms in Spain. Currently, his son José Luis Giménez heads the company and is considered a prodigy by the Valencian press, as he is one of today’s most dedicated and creative designers, capable of drawing a firework rainbow in tribute to the LGTB community or painting the sky purple for abused women, as he did this year in Valencia in his fireworks display and which went around the world. Last year the company was widely praised around Europe for its display in Pamplona (2016), for which it was awarded the Champion of Champions trophy. There is no doubt that José Luis is one of today’s very best designers and that creativity and synchronisation are in his DNA, together with the continuous innovation he applies in his displays.
Founded in 1994, Pirotecnia Tomás is today one of the most charismatic pyrotechnic companies in Spain. José Antonio Gregori, the current manager, and Miquel Àngel Tomás, technical director and designer of the displays, have worked tirelessly to implement a philosophy of continuous improvement in their products, which has increased their competitiveness in the market. The firm’s designs are characterised by their highly synchronised effects and the blend of tradition and modernity in the digital systems used. The result is displays with rhythm, charisma and Valencian character.
Hermanos Ferrández was originally founded over one hundred years ago by a family with a long history of working in the pyrotechnic arts. It is currently run by the four eldest sons of Antonio Ferrández, who have more than 60 years’ experience in the sector. Leo Ferrández is a designer who innovates in every section and combines sound and light in a very special way, creating his own unique effects. Innovation and tradition are part of this company, in which creativity is ever-present in each of their displays.
Régie Fête is a very young company (2004) located in the former mining town of Harnes, close to Lens (France). Specialising in multimedia and pyro-musical displays, this small family business made its debut in Blanes with a display entitled Mother Nature. The company stands out for the quality of its material, above all its colour and luminosity, its creativity and composition, and the innovation demonstrated in each of its displays. With the best technology and safety systems, and extremely high-quality pyrotechnic material, Régie Fête is capable of creating truly unique displays. The innovation, sensations and magic which are characteristic of the new French pyrotechnic style are present in this innovative show.
Pirotecnia Pablo is one of the most important fireworks companies in northern Spain. Located in the natural paradise of Cangas del Narcea (Asturias), the firm has carved out its own place between tradition and innovation, investing in research and development and collaborating with the University of Oviedo to obtain new fireworks. Using state-of-the-art technology allows it to create a rhythm and cadence of vibrant fireworks in each of its displays. It could be said that the strength of its displays forms part of this company’s DNA. This year Pirotecnia Pablo has the honour of providing the fireworks display on Saint Anna’s Day, and the firm plans to offer a performance bearing the personal stamp of José de la Villa, who returns to Blanes hungry for victory after many years without taking the prized trophy.
