About Us

Adamo Group is a second generation family business founded in 1964 by John Adamo, Sr.

John Sr. was a leader in the demolition industry in the Detroit, Michigan area and as a result of his insight and passion Adamo Group evolved from a small local demolition company to a national site decommissioning and redevelopment business partner for clients across the country.

Through their impressive growth, Adamo Group retained their family values culture and John Sr.’s legacy continues on through his sons John Jr. and Richard who now operate the company with the same dedication established by their father. 

Adamo, a name synonymous with both demolition and environmental remediation, has completed many of Michigan’s highest profile projects. Their presence has been noted throughout the Midwest for performing demolition, decontamination, asset recovery and related services.

Proud of its heritage and history in Detroit, Adamo Group was certified as a Detroit Based Enterprise (DBE) in 1996 and has since expanded its facilities and reaffirmed its commitment to working with and supporting the city. With a strong infrastructure of engineers and management professionals, Adamo Group has developed into a technical team that advises clients on managing the seemingly endless environmental issues and regulatory mandates impacting demolition projects. The company stands apart from its peers through its consultative approach as well as its focus on crucial areas such as:

  • Strict time management to meet clients’ short term constraints.
  • Detailed record keeping and progress scheduling.
  • Hands-on safety practices critical in today's facilities.
