About Us


D & T Imports, Inc. has been doing business as Area 51 Fireworks since 2003. Together Tim Mckoy and Doug Cianfrocca have established a line of products and service unmatched in the industry. Each has over 30 years of experience in all areas of the fireworks business. From designing innovative new products, to supplying wholesalers and consumers alike with great pricing and exceptional performance, Tim and Doug know what sells and will bring satisfied customers back year after year.

Joining forces over a dozen years ago, their goal was to bring a different brand of fireworks that performed the best and at a price that could not be beat. They began with the Alien brand and have added Reaper’s Doom to the mix. Terrific graphics and outstanding performance are making these brands household names across the country. Their goal was to have a retail store in Pahrump, NV that also housed their warehouse to build a wholesale business 2nd to none. Every year since their inception has seen significant growth in both the retail and wholesale departments. Currently Area 51 ships to more than 12 states with new destinations being added all the time. This is especially true in the last 4 years as sales have grown exponentially.

A new store in Fort Mill, SC opened in May 2014. As has been the case in all of their endeavors, it is doing phenomenally well. This store coupled with the Pahrump’s continued growth provides proof that Tim and Doug’s original idea was correct. Provide great products, at great prices and treat every customer with unmatched service and you are bound to succeed….and they have.


Tim McKoy grew up in the fireworks business. After nearly 40 years he has witnessed and/or tried many, many things. First and foremost is to be a leader and innovator in the design and manufacture of pyrotechnics. Multiple trips to China, visiting dozens of factories and watching thousands of items perform year after year has given Tim an unparalleled ability to choose only the best to put the Alien or Reaper’s Doom logos on. Speak with any of the thousands of Area 51 customers and you will quickly understand that quality is number one. Alien and Reaper’s Doom brands ARE THE BEST YOU CAN GET!!!!

  1. I just wanted to inform you that I was very pleased with the customer service I received from Corri Wiggins. I have been dealing with Red Apple and Blackjack in the past but I will without a doubt be giving you guys my business in the future. The prices on your Excalibur shells is second to none and your assortment by the case is something I will definitely be telling my friends about. I cant believe i have been wasting my time with your rivals and not giving you guys a shot. Glad i finally did and I look forward to seeing you guys again. Once again I want to reiterate how patient Corri was with me…. I felt no pressure and she was willing to go the extra mile to answer my questions. Sincerely, Adrian V

  2. Ian from the Chesterfield NH store is the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic fireworks employee I have ever met, from all the stores in this country, to wholesale sellers in China, Ian is the BEST!. EVERY FIREWORKS STORE IS ULTIMATELY THE SAME, same look, setup, prices, and deals. The only thing diffrent is the PEOPLE. and Ian will forever be in my mind as a comparison and bar that has been set whenever I meet or talk to any fireworks employee. You will be hearing from me about wholesale prices on full shipping crates because of Ian. Thank you for a completely next level experience!

    1. Cases are not buy one get one nor are they buy one get two free. Assortments can be either, but only on the wholesale side. Please call the store nearest you for pricing and availability information. Thanks!
