History of the D.H. Griffin Companies

Posted: February 23, 2015 in Uncategorized

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 3rd largest demolition company in the United States in its annual ENR 2013 Top 600 Specialty Contractors issue in October 2013.  In the same issue, Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. (DARI) was ranked in the Top 20 Firms in Asbestos Abatement at #13.

Growth in Services

Over the years, the DHG family of companies has grown to include the following groups:


1985 Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. (DARI)
1995 D.H. Griffin Construction Company
D.H. Griffin of Texas established in Houston, TX
2004 D.H. Griffin Infrastructure, LLC.
2005 D.H. Griffin Companies Used Equipment Division
2007 D.H. Griffin Contracting, Inc. (Acquisition of Taft Contracting Company – Southern Division)

These divisions have added to the services offered by DHG, allowing DHG to self-perform as a full service construction company, providing associated turnkey services under one contract.

D.H. Griffin Companies Today

Today, the DHG Companies continue to operate as a family owned business. Many things have changed since the company first started, but not our dedication to providing professional services. Hard work and dedication in completing a project in a safe, cost-effective and timely manner continue to be the primary objectives of our family of companies. Combining our financial strength and large equipment fleet with our experienced people and strong reputation, we have the resources to honor any commitments we enter into.
