We’re launching a new video series to mark our 60th year in business – and we’re inviting you to join us on that journey.
Ten years ago, we published ‘Dave’s Demolition Diaries’ from our former Group Chairman David Coleman, sharing stories from Dave’s lifetime in the demolition industry and watching his parents grow the business from scratch.
In 2022/2023, we’re taking that concept digital. Dave’s son, our CEO Mark Coleman, will be recording a series of videos over the next 12 months, sharing his experiences throughout his life, talking about his love for the industry, the challenges that we’ve faced and the successes that we’ve achieved. He’ll be giving a flavour of the culture at Colemans and sharing our vision for the future.
Key themes across the series will include:
- The history of Colemans, including focus on the last ten years
- Challenges to the business and the industry
- Our involvement in the community
- People development
- Key project successes and award wins
- Industry topics such as environmental, skills shortages and innovation
Watch the first video
Our first video below introduces the series and the Colemans story, right back to our roots when Mark’s grandparents moved to Birmingham from Ireland, fell in love and started the business in 1962.
Mark’s story is accompanied by some unmissable early photos of our fleet and the company’s first sites – watch the video below to see more about how our rich Irish heritage helped shaped the family values of trust, honesty and togetherness to which the business still operates today, as well as Mark’s first memories of being on site.
