Celebrating 50 Years in Business
777 was originally founded in 1964 by John Pearce, purchased by Michael J Pearce in 1970 and has grown to become one of the UK’s leading family owned demolition companies.
Michael J Pearce was convinced that the demolition process did not have to thrive on confrontation. The business he founded was built on a philosophy of openness. He believed that if you are straightforward and open in your dealings with people and if you deliver a good job for your client they will always return. 777’s philosophy, allied to his determination and sound business acumen, has been the foundation for the Company’s continuing success.
More than fifty years on that philosophy continues to underpin the way the business operates today. As the Company has steadily evolved over the past four decades, our driver has always been to understand the aims and objectives of our clients and other stakeholders, then organise ourselves to become valued members of project teams.
