Manufacturing and R&D

Foti have manufactured specialised pyrotechnic devices for defence industries in Australia and internationally for over 20 years, including training simulation, signalling, special effects and time-delay devices. In 2008 Foti completed stage one of their $5 million storage and manufacturing facility in Marulan near Sydney, signalling a new era in their development and manufacturing capability. Foti’s quality-driven manufacturing is supported by ISO9001:2015 QMS certification for the manufacturing of pyrotechnic devices.

Foti undertake tailored research and development projects in the pyrotechnics field for third party customers and are known for delivering results that are cost effective, timely, practical and above all, successful. Foti have demonstrated skill and experience in developing their own innovative pyrotechnic products as well as bespoke pyrotechnic manufacturing systems that achieve safe, efficient and precision manufacturing.

Explosives Storage

The new Foti storage and manufacturing facility at Marulan is set on 200 acres and exceeds storage safety requirements and regulations by a fair margin. The facility is the closest storage facility of its type to Sydney (170km or 2 hours from Sydney CBD) with a current capability of more than 100,000 kg of Class 1 explosives storage.

Foti offer both short and long-term storage services to the mining explosives, pyrotechnics and fireworks industries.

Electric Igniter (Foti E-Match)

Motivated by the goal of producing the safest pyrogen electric igniter available on the market, years of development saw us commence using our own Australian-made e-Match since 2009. After more than three years of field testing in various conditions and applications, our e-Match has now been sold to markets worldwide including the USA, Asia and Europe. The Foti Australian-made e-Match is designed and manufactured for safety and precision, improved Risk Management for impact and friction sensitivity, lead and perchlorate free.

An Igniter For Safety and Accuracy

Risk factors associated with traditional pyrogen e-Matches include their susceptibility to ignite under conditions of pressure, either through impact or friction. With this in mind, the Foti family developed the Foti e-Match specifically with the goal of eliminating the potential risks from friction and impact but without compromising performance. This is the main safety feature of the Foti e-Match. Foti International Fireworks have field tested and used the Foti e-Match in Australia over 5 years and in countless pyro conditions- from Sydney’s New Year’s Eve fireworks to countless nightly stage pyro shows, to close proximity arena displays- all with great success and firing accuracy
