In 1926, Charles Goldblum founded Stamford Wrecking Company. Recycling even in the 1920’s, we performed building demolition and then sold the used building supplies, plumbing supplies and lumber. The reusable lumber was sold to area builders, while scraps and wood unsuitable for construction was sold to bakeries to keep their ovens fired.
Stamford Wrecking received one of Connecticut's first demolition licenses. By starting small, gaining experience and public confidence, Stamford Wrecking received substantial name recognition in 1938 when it obtained the contract for, and successfully completed, the demolition of the private residence and stable of Percy Rockefeller.
As each generation has learned from the knowledge of the past, we continue to enhance our solid reputation in the industry. We also continually strive to exceed the highest standards in the industry for innovation and safety.
These many years have given us experience with all types of projects including residential, commercial, and industrial demolitions and implosions together with specialty structures including smoke stacks and towers, historical salvage and tank removals. Since the 1980s, we have performed the remediation of soils, asbestos, hazardous materials, pesticides, PCBs and oils together with substantial site services and new construction.
Our Construction Services Division actively assists our customers on non-demolition projects such as building construction and renovation, bridge construction and repairs, bulkhead installation, culverts, dams and other similar projects. Each generation looks forward to taking on the future challenges of the construction industry.
