Inc. is in the business of helping its customers grow, President Dan Costello says. “Typically, we remove obsolete, outdated equipment and facilities,” he says. “It’s all pretty much to make way for new growth.” Based in Middleboro, Mass., Costello Dismantling provides dismantling, demolition and recycling services. A longtime veteran of the industry, Costello founded the firm 25 years ago, after working for another demolition company. Today, with a staff of 50, Costello Dismantling serves a broad range of markets, including industrial, commercial, municipal and government. In addition, through its recycling services, the company will recycle the commodities that comprise the buildings and equipment it demolishes. However, “The most valuable thing that we recycle is the underlying land that those structures sit on,” Costello asserts. “By making that land available, its current value can be realized for new developments, new process equipment [or] more economically and environmentally friendlier redevelopments.” Middleboro, Mass., Costello Dismantling provides dismantling, recycling »Based inrange of markets, including industrial, commercial, municipal anddemolition andsectors. services.
