About Us

We know what it feels like to have an important project at hand and to need the right teams in place to get the job done.

If you’re like us, you’ve probably seen projects go well over budget, miss a deadline, or be completed halfway. You’ve likely been a part of a project that started out well, then things just kept going wrong.

At Midwest Wrecking Company, we get it.

Choosing a demolition company is a tough and important decision. For over six decades, we’ve helped hundreds of people achieve the desired end result of their projects by ensuring the job is done right.

In 1952, Stanley Lempa started Midwest Wrecking Company with little more than a truck, a sledge hammer, and an unrelenting work ethic. Over the next six decades, Midwest Wrecking has grown into one of the most respected wrecking and demolition companies in Chicagoland.

While we may have grown in size, we’ve never forgotten our humble beginnings and continue to honor Stanley’s legacy by following the moral principles he instilled in the organization: Honesty, Integrity, and Quality.

We are committed to doing the proper planning for every project so you can feel confident that the job will be done the way you want. We go through 4 phases of planning to make sure we know exactly how the job will go and anticipate any potential problems. Once you reach out to us with your ideas, you’ll have taken the first step to your next successful project.

We believe you deserve a demolition team that doesn’t cut corners, stays within budgets, and meets the deadlines.
