The Bradley Group can trace its roots to the original demolition company started in 1990. Since then, the family owned company has undergone a number of transformations resulting in the present structure.


1990 – Paul Jopauls-hathnson established the business. The first machine Paul bought was a crusher.

1996 – Bradley Demolition started trading as a limited company at Bradley Hall Trading Estate in Standish, which is where the name originates from. At that time the company employed approximately 15 people.

From Standish, Bradley Demolition moved to Blackrod Industrial Estate, Bolton.

2011 – we took over Ribble Reclamation, now Lancashire’s largest architectural salvage yard.

April 2012 – we moved to our current address at Kent Street, Preston and now employ over 70 people, some of whom have been employed from the very start.

2016 – following expansion of the business, we purchased the yard at Kent Street, built six new offices and a new reception area.

October 2016 – Daryl Birchall was made a Director.
