Serious information for motor vehicle dismantlers

Training
We keep you up to date with every aspect of the industry
If you're involved in end of life vehicle depollution then this site is for you. Whether you are an ATF just involved with depollution or a vehicle dismantler who sells used parts and salvage, then our aim is to keep you up to date with changes affecting your industry.


There was a time when we simply got on with the job and the rest of the world left us alone but times have changed. Now we are an integral part of the waste industry (although it's always been hard to understand) and we have to keep abreast of all the changes affecting our businesses.

To make finding what you want easy, the most recent articles are listed in the right hand column and below you will find links to our past emails.



Editor Chris Floate
ATF Professional's editor, Chris Floate.
ATF Professional's editor, is Chris Floate. Chris has been involved with writing and editing magazines which cover our industry since the mid 1980's. Having a background prior to this in technical writing, Chris took on the editorship of Recycling World in 1987. The title was aimed at those individuals and businesses involved in recycling. At the time this was mainly scrap metal and vehicle dismantling. During his 14 years, the recycling industry developed from what was very much a financially driven market to the environmentally driven market it is today.

Recycling world was at the forefront of this fast changing and developing market, giving in depth analysis and direction to the growing need for environmental awareness. Whilst still editor of Recycling World, in 1998 Chris took on the editorship of The Landscaper, the leading magazine for the landscape trades.

Over the last 15 years, Chris has also edited the Motor Vehicle Dismantlers' Association and as such has experienced the many changes to our industry first hand. In ATF Professional he shares that wealth of knowledge with the whole industry.
