Located in Southern California, American Wrecking Inc. owns and operates an unparalleled fleet of equipment. We average over 160 projects per year and boast a 100% success rate for implosions with an average 93% recycle rate on every project demolished!

Our Founders

American Wrecking Inc. was founded by brothers Pepe and Jerry Galaviz. Their entrepreneurial spirit plus Pepe’s background as a heavy equipment operator made for a winning team. The pair built the business in steps, first acquiring the assets of American Wrecking Inc. with a critical demolition license and eventually partnering with long-time friend Robert Hall to form the current company. This dynamic trio grew what was an $800k per year business to a multimillion dollar enterprise with over 100 employees including three generations of family. Today, working hard and honoring family values are still at the heart of American Wrecking Inc.
