Industrial Demolition Contractors

About Us

Industrial Wreckers – as the Company was known for more than three decades – has been a pioneer in much of the advancement made by the demolition industry in Australia over the past thirty years.

Today Industrial is recognised for its skills in a number of areas, which includes demolition, dismantling, environmental services, recycling and specialist disaster recovery services.

Derek Wilson and Rudy Kalab founded Industrial Wreckers.  They formed an enduring partnership in 1976 and developed a specialist business that focussed on the industrial sector. Today –the management team has expanded to include Graham Cressey to develop the Company's range of demolition services along with Steve McCoach to establish and develop the Company's environmental services capacity.The variety of work that the company now successfully delivers, includes everything from major industrial demolition projects to intricate dismantling works within live plant and production environments, bridge and wharf dismantling, commercial buildings and complex soil & groundwater remediation tasks.

Over time, Industrial Demolition has become a valuable resource for organizations like the Melbourne Fire Brigade and the EPA, assisting with special difficulties like the demolition of burning or fire damaged buildings.
Industrial Environmental Services is a specialist discipline with experience in proven and practical remediation technologies. One of the goals of the company is to minimize material being diverted to landfills and to maximise the reuse and recycling of waste materials at their source.

Industrial has formed a number of strategic alliances over the years to add considerable professional knowledge and up-to-date specialist skills to its service provision. The decision was made very early on in the company's development, to concentrate on core skills and source other specialists when and where they were required. This includes OHS professionals, structural and mechanical engineers, hygienists, hazardous materials removal specialists and cranage contractors.

Today, the company has an excellent multi-skilled network that supports the Industrial Team in delivering the best outcomes for its clients.
