DSSP Wins Medium Business of the Year

  • April 14, 2016

Reno, NV (March 31, 2016) – Digital Solid State Propulsion, the maker of the eSquib®, has won the Reno Gazette-Journal’s “Medium Business of the Year,” and displayed their eSquib technology at the awards banquet.

The RGJ business awards recognize small, medium, and large companies that have shown outstanding achievement in the last year, and DSSP is no exception. With beginning roots in the aerospace engineering industry, DSSP has now expanded into oil and gas work, as well as pyrotechnics for entertainment. These tiny pyrotechnic devices, eSquibs, are non-flammable and can fire up to 1,000 times each before requiring replacement, making them the world’s first reusable pyrotechnic.

In fact, eSquibs are so safe that the Atlantis Casino Resort allowed the company to display 16 of them along the stage in their Grand Ballroom for the NCET and RGJ Business Awards Banquet. There were 27 awards given at the banquet, and after each recipient’s name was called, the array of eSquibs fired – directly in front of the crowd. The display was hugely successful and added the extra “sparkle” that NCET has been looking to add to its event.
