“We are so proud to have such a nationally recognized company like Pyrotecnico / Melrose right here in the county. They have been in the fireworks business for 125 years, which is a significant milestone to celebrate! We applaud their dedication to excellent customer service by providing a safe, affordable, and memorable experience for their audiences,” stated Commission President, Sheila Matias.

“We are grateful for the willingness of our local companies to open their doors to us during these business retention visits. Bringing new businesses to the community is critically important to maintain strong economic growth, but it is just as important to maintain relationships with and assist already-existing companies within the community. Because of this, we invite our LaPorte County businesses to reach out to our office to schedule time for a business retention visit to see what the county can do for your company,” stated Mike Seitz, IOM, Business Retention Manager of the LaPorte County Office of Community and Economic Development.

“Loving what you do and doing that very well is commonly how success is achieved, and Pyrotecnico is truly raising the bar every year.  This company screams exciting workforce, and we want the job seekers to know more about them,” stated Tony Rodriguez, EDFP., Director of the LaPorte County Community & Economic Development Office.
