Myth 1: Dismantling and Demolition are Dangerous and Messy

This is one of the most common misconceptions about dismantling and demolishing equipment, process units, plants, and refineries. The truth is people hire expert demolition contractors like Midwest Steel because we are uniquely qualified to get the job done safely and properly. We’ve been doing it for over 50 years without a single OSHA safety citation in fact.

Careful and precise planning is done before we deconstruct your site or facility. In fact, our well-trained professionals follow safety protocols that meet or exceed legal requirements. We handle your demolition with great care from start to finish. That’s why over 90% of our clients are return customers or referrals.

Myth 2: Any Contractor Can Handle Demolition and Dismantling 

Plant dismantling and demolition and associated projects are highly specialized work. Midwest Steel has a half-century of experience in safely and efficiently demolishing equipment, plants, refineries, and more. No matter how challenging your project may seem, we have the expertise to get it done right. 

Not only can we dismantle and demolish tanks and terminals, but we also handle scrap metal recycling and selling surplus plant equipment. When you need an industrial demolition job done safely and efficiently with the absolute minimum of hassles, Midwest Steel is the partner you want in your corner. 

Myth 3: Dismantling and Demolition Are Bad for the Environment

Yet another misunderstanding we often encounter about steel dismantling and demolition is that these services aren’t environmentally sound. The reality is the exact opposite. The services Midwest Steel provides promote sustainability and environmental stewardship. Scrap metal recycling and surplus equipment sales ensure that your valuable resources do not go to waste.

Midwest Steel believes we all have a responsibility to be good stewards of the Earth and our natural resources and our personal and professional ethics reflect that belief. But the proof is in the pudding, as they say. Our 51 years in business without a single EPA citation stands as evidence of our commitment to environmental responsibility. 

Myth 4 Demolition and Dismantling Are Not Cost Effective

As we all know, demolition is part of business. The old must be cleared away to make room for the new. The key is partnering with a top-tier dismantling and demolition contractor who will make the best use of your resources. 

For example, we can source process equipment directly from our dismantling job sites to deliver our clients convenience and savings that our competition simply cannot match. Our scrap metal recycling and used and surplus plant equipment sales ensure your resources never go to waste. 

From tanks and turbines, to heat exchangers pumps, and vessels, our process equipment sales pros can see that you get what you need to keep your project moving forward on time and on budget.
