I liked the many beautiful stunning and wonderful efx of the britishmade standard fireworks of the 70s 80s and early 90s before the chinese influence took over totally and changed the brand beyond recognition and blackcat got their grubby hands on the company in 1999 and cut off the traditions we had in good safe and exciting britishmade fireworks altogether. Standard are making a good attempt at going back to their roots and retro with the old company logo (and old style design/labels) on todays fireworks but the effects dont match the heritage of the original company and the british traditions of great british family fun that it stood for. I have spoke to Black Cat (standards owners) to try and get them to replicate, under Chinese manufacture, the colours and effects we used to get and enjoy (as kids of the 70s 80s and 90s used to know) but they dont seem interested nor do they reply on this. It would be nice if they could bring out a Standard Fireworks British Classics range based on all that they used to do to bs7114 part 2 1988 replicating British style efx under Chinese manufacture. I feel this would be good for fans of the old company and the joy it brought to millions. So over to you do you miss the old british made Standard Fireworks effects of yesteryear and wish they could return?
