Liberty Industrial was founded by Director Clinton Dick in 2008. Liberty Industrial was conceived due to a growing need for specialist demolition consultation to major mining, energy and other industrial companies in both Australia and abroad  Initially the company was primarily involved in providing mine and plant closure planning studies and expert industrial demolition consultancy services.

Liberty Industrial’s transition into demolition contracting was a natural progression due to encouragement and support from our client base. The business was joined by Simon Gill in 2010 and he was appointed a Director in 2011. Clinton’s and Simon’s demolition expertise and passion to engage with clients has seen the company undertake significant growth, to the point where Liberty Industrial established itself as the leading contractor for industrial demolition projects Australia wide.

The company has developed a reputation for delivering some of the toughest industrial demolition projects in the world and has received recognition of their achievements at the World Demolition Awards on multiple occasions.

Both company Directors are sought after expert opinions, with both having delivered presentations at the World Demolition Summit and Clinton appointed to the Word Demolition Awards panel of judges and nominated as a Finalist for the CEO Awards Building and Construction Executive of the Year award.

Liberty Industrial has recently diversified into remediation and civil contracting services, an offering that complements Liberty Industrial’s core business extremely well.

Liberty Industrial has been successfully operating for 9 years and has been growing steadily over that period. The below company timeline highlights some of Liberty Industrial’s important milestones and significant achievements.
