Lacroix-Ruggieri is a powerhouse of international fireworks, being born out of two of Europe's oldest fireworks companies; Ruggieri from Italy and Ettiene Lacroix from France. The combination of these two forces has created one of Europe's leading pyrotechnic specialists, with over 250 years of experience in the field. Having dazzled the crowds with their fireworks for the likes of King Louis XIV of France in the 1700's, Lacroix-Ruggieri now provide the firework displays for such rock royalty as U2, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones.
With its own famous research laboratory, Lacroix-Ruggieri are always looking to astonish the crowds with their innovative displays, and promise to deliver a breathtaking display at the Oman World Fireworks Championship in 2010.
