Historical DH Griffin Truck


The D.H. Griffin family of companies began with the opening of our demolition company.  D.H. Griffin Wrecking Company, Inc. was founded in 1959.

Since that first project in 1959, the company has grown steadily. In 1967, the small demolition and recycling company known today as D. H. Griffin Wrecking Co., Inc. was incorporated. In the years since that time, the wrecking company has grown to be the one of the largest demolition contractors in the world. Engineering News and Record (ENR) ranked D. H. Griffin Wrecking Co., Inc. in the Top 20 Firms in Demolition and Wrecking, as the 4th largest demolition company in the United States in its annual ENR 2017 Top 600 Specialty Contractors issue in October 2016.  In the same issue, Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. (DARI) was ranked in the Top 20 Firms in Asbestos Abatement at #7.
