The president and CEO of Zambelli Fireworks, Tom Bametzrieder, has resigned, according to a statement from the company.

“We thank him for his service and wish him luck in his future endeavors,” Ed Meyer, a managing partner at Zambelli, said in a statement.

The company did not provide further details explaining Bametzrieder’s departure.

Bametzrieder joined the company in 2017, according to a statement from the company. He could not immediately be reached for comment.

Members of the Zambelli ownership group will handle leadership responsibilities until the company names a new CEO, the statement said.

“Zambelli has the strategic direction to maximize our resources, our employees and our great history of success in this demanding industry,” the statement said. “Our task now is to find a leader to take our team to the next level.”

Zambelli moved its headquarters from New Castle to the Cranberry area in 2018 for a more “efficient and flexible work space,” the company said at the time.

The company, which put down roots in New Castle in 1893 when Antonio Zambelli emigrated from Italy, still operates a fireworks warehouse in Edinburg, Lawrence County.

Zambelli produces more than 1,600 shows per year, according to figures provided by the company.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
