Young Explosives Corporation proudly serves New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Started in 1949, we produce 500 professional fireworks shows a year with 200 employees during our busy season. We specialize in outdoor displays consisting of aerial shells and ground effects. We also provide professional indoor displays with products specifically designed for indoor use. Our staff is knowledgeable and flexible, allowing us to handle any display. As a child, Robert Young (1916-1996) felt if he burned the bright colored streamers that were left scattered on the ground after a parade, their blaze would make a colorful fireworks display. What started as a childhood fascination, grew into a hobby and eventually a career and a legacy. In 1949, Bob founded his own company and Young Explosives Corporation has been family-owned ever since. Today Bob’s son, Jim, is President of the company. With over 500 shows a year and 200 employees during our busy season, Jim and his employees have taken Young Explosives to a new level. Although Young Explosives may be larger than Bob ever imagined possible, the importance of a family-owned business is something kept close to the heart and something Bob would be forever proud of creating.
