Pyrotek Adds Gordon Hyndford To Staff

Pyrotek welcomes back Gordon Hyndford as project director after a long absence from the company. Hyndford started working for Pyrotek in 1981 with current owner, Doug Adams, but left the company to explore life on the road. Hyndford soon found success touring with rock and roll acts such as The Rolling Stones, Prince, Bon Jovi, and Janet Jackson as well as working with corporate shows like the Pope, American Standard and many others.

Hyndford states, “The knowledge I have gained in lighting, pyro, scaffolding, temporary power, and automation control over the last 23 years has been invaluable and rewarding. However, at some point you have to get off the road. What better place to go then back to where it all started.”

Hyndford will be based in the Toronto office, but will also be overseeing some installations in the field for Pyrotek and laser design. “I am so pleased to be working with Gordon again after all these years. His expertise was certainly missed,” Adams commented.
