CDC, currently based at Waldringfield, near Woodbridge, carries out a wide range of demolition work including specialist projects such as motorway and rail bridges and high-rise buildings in close proximity to other properties.

Tru 7 is best known as owner of the Trucks ‘R’ Us and Tippers ‘R Us vehicle hire brands but also now includes a building waste and aggregates recycling operation, making CDC a logical extension to its business.

The recycling operation was launched following the group’s move two years ago from Felixstowe Road in Ipswich to Sinks Pit, a former quarry site at Kesgrave, to where the staff of CDC will also now relocate.

The group said in a statement: “We are very pleased to announce that Clarke Demolition Company has joined the Tru 7 Group.”

It added: “CDC is an old name in the industry that we plan on investing heavily in to, we hope, make it a significant force in the UK demolition sector.”
