Special FX and Events started long before it even had a name! With the love for science and being an avid Radio HAM since the age of 12 LASERS and Sound became a passion for the founder of Special FX and Events. Our CEO, Pierre Rossouw, started in the Disco Tec (Night Club) in 1984 building LASERS, servicing speakers, building Valve amplifiers, and eventually featured regularly in well-known clubs. 

He went on to work for a production company (which eventually retrenched all their staff and closed down) as a laser technician, however, he always wanted to put his qualification as an Electro-Physicist to design shows with more impact by combining pyrotechnics and custom products/acts. He embraced this situation and started working for himself. 

Finally, in 2001 we received more and more requests as the word spread like wildfire of this small; seemingly unknown company that can create whatever the clients dream of.  

This started weighing heavily on Pierre and this is when we made the decision to scale down on working with nightclub equipment, take the plunge into the vast world of entertainment, knowing that we will compete with some of the best companies out there. 

In 2002 we registered Special FX and Events, became registered Pyrotechnicians, investing in equipment that would allow us to design and create an event from the ground up. We have not looked back since… Facing many trials and tribulations, we kept chasing our dream of supplying the event industry with a full house solution with custom acts and equipment catering for your entire event…
