Who are we?

PDK Pyro

PDK Pyro Inc mission is to produce electronically fired outdoor fireworks displays that are done in a safe and secure environment for the staff and public to enjoy. Here is how a Saturday night works for us.

2016 was an interesting year for The Maine Powder House!

The Maine Powder House was started back in the 1990’s in Peru, ME by the late James "JR" Worthington, in the back of a garage and was operated there for many years. It was sold to Chris Clark and moved to Limington by the late 2000’s, but by the beginning of 2016 the owner decided to close up shop.  “Was time to retire and do other interesting things” was the plan. By late 2016 through a chance encounter, a new plan was hatched – and PDK Pyro Inc, a state of Maine fireworks company, became the proud new owners of The Maine Powder House, and moved to Durham, ME. By December 2016, The Maine Powder House was back up and running, supplying the same black powder products that put our name on the map.
