Central Demolition upgrade
their processing capabilities
with a Blue MRF
Central Demolition started life in 1993 as Central Demolition & Dismantling and has continued to grow into the award-winning company it is today. Back in 1993, Central Demolition Ltd comprised of one excavator and one tipper and has now grown to employ nearly 200 members of staff, operating a mixed fleet of HGV vehicles and 100 items of plant equipment from their Bonnybridge HQ.
The recycling element of the business commenced in 1997 supplying skips to domestic and commercial customers, recycled aggregates and tipping facilities.
In the 25+ years in business, the company has undertaken some high-profile contracts including the John Brown Ship Yard, the former NS&I Bank HQ in Glasgow, former Alcan Chemicals Factory and the Belsmyre High Rise Flats.

Spaleck® Waste Screen:
The Spaleck® waste screen at Central Demolition incorporates a vibrating screen with an optimum circular motion and is driven by a high-performance and equally efficient three- phase AC motor.

Having supplied the original plant 11 years ago, Blue Scotland and Central Demolition have built a solid relationship over the years with Blue supplying other equipment, including several Fuchs Material Handlers that feed the new MRF.
