For over 90 years, Geppert Bros. Inc. has been in the business of demolition in the Philadelphia area. Founded in 1925 by William A. Geppert, Sr., and operated today by his son Richard, P. Geppert and his wife Mary Patricia Geppert, Geppert Bros., Inc. has unparalleled experience: from the early days of hand wrecking and salvage to today's mechanized demolition. Throughout the 90+ years of Geppert Bros., Inc.’s history, the company has built a reputation for high-quality work and exceptional safety.

Today, Geppert Bros., Inc. provides demolition services to the Tri-State area specializing in complete industrial, commercial and residential demolition as well as interior and selective demolition. Their workforce is fully trained and comprised of qualified operators whose skills cover all aspects of work within the demolition industry. Their Site Managers and Foremen have considerable experience in all types of demolition. It is not unusual to see the owners at a jobsite daily, to ensure the quality and safety of a project.

Geppert Bros has demolished every type of structure from the Philadelphia Spectrum to the demolition of 20-plus buildings at the former Byberry State Hospital.  Geppert Bros., Inc. cleared 4 city blocks in downtown Philadelphia for the expansion of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Most recently they completed the demolition work associated with the Wexford Science and Technology and the University City Science Center project as well as the successful implosions of both Philadelphia Housing Authority’s High Rise Queen Lane and Blumberg Apartments.

Mary Patricia Geppert also serves on the board of the National Demolition Association and is also the Chairperson for the local G.B.C.A.’s Safety Committee.  Geppert Bros., Inc. is also currently in the process of becoming a Certified WBE Contractor.
