A TOP fireworks company opened its new UK head office in Huddersfield.
China-based Brothers Pyrotechnics has set up its British HQ on St Peter's Street with owner Gary Wang travelling from Beihai in China to cut the ribbon.
UK manager John Foulstone has big plans for the company.
He said: "We would love to be the country's number one distributor of fireworks."
And the Deighton man said the town had been the obvious choice for the head office.
He said: "There's a great enthusiasm in Yorkshire generally for fireworks, and particularly so in Huddersfield."
Brothers, one of the top ten fireworks exporters in the world, opened its first British shop on Bradford Road in October.
Mr Foulstone, who is pictured with chief executive officer Pamela Shair, hopes the company will be able to open a new shop each year.
Brothers also sponsored the match ball in last Saturday's game between Town and Northampton at the Galpharm.
