Northern business takes over Falkirk firework firm

A FALKIRK-BASED fireworks firm is set to make a big noise after it was bought over by a leading light in pyrotechnics from the north.

Saltire Fireworks has been taken over by Inverurie-based Fireworx Scotland, which has become one of the biggest names in the world

of firework displays over the last seven years.

Saltire Fireworks will continue to trade under its own name as part of the Fireworx Scotland empire.

Mark Copland, head of Fireworx Scotland, said: "We are very pleased with

the level of business we received in November and that trend is set to continue until the end of the year because we already have 16 firework displays booked for December 31 alone."
