From 1952 to 2021 –
what a transformation for Demolition!
Kings Heath Demolition Ltd was started in 1952 by Jim Ferran, brothers and their father, it was a leading demolition specialist in Birmingham for many years. Jim (pictured) personally completed his two years within the Army and re-joined his family in 1954 in the family business.
Jim speaks in detail of the works they completed across the West Midlands and explains how it was mostly done by hand. KHD had three yards where every possible item was taken back and recycled into the construction industry.
Kings Heath Demolition Ltd came to life again in 2016
After working over 20 years for one of the Largest Demolition Companies Paul Ferran decided to restart his Fathers business
In February 2016 at Jim's 80th Birthday party, Kavan Ferran and Cerys Ferran ( Jim's Grandchildren) surpried him with the news that their Father (Paul) would soon be restarting Kings Heath Demolition with his business partner John Smith.
Jim was more than happy with this and explains how he was excited to see the company pick up where it left off. KHD is now owned and run by Paul Ferran (Jim’s son) and John Smith with the support of their Senior Contracts Manager, Tony Nicholls.
Jim recently visited the Murley base in Stourport to take delivery of three new additions to the growing fleet of Doosan machines.
Jim has a great knowledge of the industry, he keeps up with all goings on and is more than happy to see the new smaller machines being delivered, all in preparation for many internal works coming through the door this year.
