DSC_2301 Martinez Specialties, Inc. is very proud of it’s quality product and superior customer service. We have gathered a few testimonials from throughout the industry.


“As an European importer and distributor to manufacturers and end users of high quality pyrotechnics we distrubute Martinez igniters for over 12 years now. The quality, reliability and consistency during all those years are unmatched. Martinez igniters fit perfectly well into our high quality product range.”

Jos Franssen- Precision Theatrical Effects Europe B.V.


“Having been personally involved in the manufacture of proximate pyrotechnic effects for more than 30 years, I have seen competitors come and go. Martinez matches are the most reliable product I have seen, and had they existed at the time, I would never have started manufacturing ematches in house. If it is a live show, it has to reliably fire on cue, and Martinez matches do just that. Quality control is the name of the game, and I am delighted to see that the new management is upholding the Martinez reliability reputation.”

Tom DeWille


“We’ve thoroughly tested 10 to 12 brands of e-match, both in the lab and in the field. Martinez is consistently the most reliable under all show conditions and firing configurations.”
