Celebrating 150 years

Octavius Hunt has a rich history which began in 1870 as the UK’s first match manufacturer. Our company has grown and developed within the pyrotechnic industry to form a successful and leading manufacturer of smoke products for various industries.

We are very proud to celebrate our 150 year milestone and it gives us an opportunity to reflect on our history, the growth of the company, the development of strong customer relationships and the innovation of quality products.

Our longevity and success as a business reflect Octavius Hunt’s ability to adapt to industry and customer demands and the technical and innovative expertise of our team. This year we will not only look back but also look forward to building on our legacy and continue to grow and provide great value products and services.
