About Us

Our group of companies has been undertaking demolition works for the past 27 years, and we have a long-term commitment to maintaining and extending our commanding position in the industry. We are the leading, largest, and the most technically advanced demolition company in Africa.      


We offer in-house, full-range demolition services, including advanced mechanical demolition and controlled implosions.  We actively pursue ongoing development of skills and equipment, to suit the changing needs of the demolition industry, assuring our Clients of our commitment to safety and excellence in all projects we undertake.


We are a technically-based company, with various members of our staff holding B.SC. and M.Sc. Degrees, as well as National Diplomas in Engineering. This expertise gives us the technical foundation to successfully engineer solutions for large and complex demolition projects. It also fuels our drive for delivering quality projects safely, cost effectively and on time.  We strive to offer our Clients innovative and technical solutions to demanding demolition challenges.


» Africa’s Premier Demolition Company

Our exemplary safety performance, premier level of service and commitment to customer satisfaction have resulted in a high volume of repeat business.  Our company has never left a project incomplete, we have never liquidated any of our companies, and we have never entered into litigation with our Clients. 


» Equipment

Jet Demolition owns and maintains a wide variety of mobile demolition equipment, ranging from a one tonne skid steer to a 34 metre, 102 tonne high-reach excavator.  The specialised demolition tools for our 30 excavators vary in size from a few hundred kilograms up to 15 tonnes, and include hydraulic shears and hammers, crushers, pulverisers and specialised attachments with quick-change mountings. We have also developed and patented a range of specialised shaped explosive charges for controlled demolition of large structures that cannot be otherwise demolished using conventional mechanical methods.


» International Projects

We regularly carry out projects outside South Africa, with current and completed projects in Algeria, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Guinea, Indonesia, Mali, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and liaise closely with our international Clients to execute detailed planning prior to the commencement of the works, thereby optimising resource allocations and equipment usage from the moment our teams arrive on site.


» Difficult and Demanding Projects

Jet Demolition carries out the majority of the difficult and demanding demolition projects in Africa.  We have extensive experience in the partial demolition of large industrial and mining plants still in operation, often times where access is restricted and vital plant services are present in close proximity.  We have undertaken controlled blasting of large structures under the most demanding conditions (within 1.5m of an operating explosives plant) and regularly carry out heavy mechanical demolition in the immediate proximity of live plants.
