About Us

FireByWire® is designed by MLE Pyrotechnics, one of the leading firework display companies in the UK. The system is driven not just by our own needs but by those of our partners and customers in the industry all over the world.

In 2002 the FireByWire® brand was born. Our first product was the worlds first fully digital and programmable firing sequencer. The concept allowed companies to trigger a device from their existing firing system and control up to 64 channels firing at preset times.

More and more features were added through a combination of both MLE’s own requirements and those suggested by customers. From the very start the system was designed for eventually interfacing with a computer controlled network – this milestone was reached in 2006.

A software developer was recruited from the world famous Warwick University to write the Windows based applications to design and launch firework displays. Over the years multiple developers have been involved in the design and programming of our Display Designer, Launcher and Co-ordinator suite.

At the same time our hardware continues to be updated as new features come to light. Where possible these are offered as upgrades to users for a very modest cost.  The system has been used to fire thousands of shows all around the world including many award winning displays at competitions both in the UK and internationally.

One of the key benefits of owning a FireByWire® system is the support we offer 24/7. We’ll bend over backwards to assist you whenever you may need it.
