Bradburn Corporation has the most efficient, best trained, knowledgeable, and safety conscious personnel in the demolition industry.
Founded by Kenneth L. Bradburn, Bradburn Wrecking has evolved from a single pick-up truck and a few hand tools to a demolition company that has successfully completed projects nationally across the United States, but our home has always been and will always be Wichita, Kansas. Kenneth had a 3rd shift job in the 1950’s at the Coleman Company in Wichita. Wanting to be his own boss he was always interested in demolition from his earlier days in the Army. He took on his first garage project against the wishes of his mother. Three days later he turned the small garage demolition project into a profitable venture by selling all the lumber from the job and making more than he earned at Coleman all month. Soon he moved into larger projects, buying his first piece of equipment, hiring employees, and forming Bradburn Wrecking Company. Kenneth Bradburn cleared the way for most of the growth in Wichita and the State of Kansas, as well Oklahoma, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa throughout the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.
After Kenneth’s passing in 1992, his son, Darren Bradburn, took the company into a growth and expansion period that continues today. Darren’s safety, perfectionism, and leadership are the hallmarks that have ensured Bradburn’s continued growth and success.
