About Hardcore Crushing

More About Hardcore Crushing Ltd, Lancashire's best Demolition Contractor

Hardcore Crushing Ltd, a Lancashire-based demolition contractor, and its sister company, Steptoe’s Yard Ltd, a stone merchant and plant hire business, are family-owned enterprises led by Andrew Shorten. These companies, employing over 30 staff members, operate from a shared 12-acre reclamation yard and urban quarry in Altham, near Accrington.

Although Steptoe’s Yard Ltd and Hardcore Crushing Ltd are distinct businesses, they function effectively as a unified entity. They share the same office space, employee pool, and plant resources, facilitating a synergistic operation.

Starting from modest beginnings, the combined annual turnover of these companies has now surpassed £3 million. This impressive growth, achieved steadily over recent years, indicates a promising and secure future.

Hardcore Crushing Ltd was established to enhance our demolition and contract crushing services, positioning ourselves as a principal contractor. This evolution shifts from our original role as an ‘operated plant-hire’ company. Nevertheless, we continue to offer entirely operated plant hire services to meet diverse client needs.

In the past decade, both businesses have seen flourishing growth in turnover and profits. Our commitment to expansion is evident in our ongoing investments in new demolition plants, state-of-the-art equipment, and skilled workforce. This strategic growth has kept us competitive and fortified our position for future success.
