The awards categories encompass the many assets involved in the vehicle recycling industry and provide plenty of options for everyone to enter and get involved. The list covers everything from equipment suppliers to sustainability. When it comes to the use of recycled parts, there is not only an award for those that supply these parts but also one for those that use the parts to repair vehicles. 

There are also specific awards for vehicle recyclers which have been divided into three categories based on the size of the operation. Furthermore, ATF Professional will present three additional awards: Unsung Hero, Rising Star, and Lifetime Achievement Award.

These awards aim to showcase the industry’s professionalism and acknowledge the achievements of those who have contributed to the increasing standards of vehicle recycling. The awards also emphasise the crucial role that vehicle recyclers play when it comes to recycling and sustainability in the 21st century.

Haydn Davies, Co-Owner of ATF Professional, said:

“Over the years, we have spoken to many individuals and companies connected to the vehicle recycling community and are always impressed by their dedication to driving the industry forward. These awards are an ideal opportunity to highlight this and be recognised.” He continued: “The nature of an awards event creates a competitive edge, with only one winner for each category. However, entering the awards and being nominated will immediately be seen as motivators and leaders in the industry in whichever category they choose.

Furthermore, it will show that they understand the many benefits that entering such an event can bring, and, essentially, how being part of the awards helps make it a terrific night for everyone involved and shows their dedication to highlighting the importance of the industry. 

Entry into the awards is free, and the categories are designed to provide opportunities for all, and we encourage their participation.”

Detailed information about the awards and category summaries can be found on the main page of the awards. Comprehensive criteria and explanations of the categories are available on the awards entry forms page, which are simple to complete.

For further information, questions, or assistance with award entries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with ATF Professional by emailing or calling 01432 355099.

After the nominations close on September 8th, an independent panel of judges will evaluate all entries, with ATF Professional staff playing no role in the judging process. The winners for each category will be announced on November 9th at the awards ceremony.

The awards and gala on the 9th of November commence with a reception set amidst the backdrop of British vehicle history, offering guests the option of a private tour before. A dinner will follow, leading up to the awards presentation. A host of entertainment has already been arranged, especially for the after party, where those attending can party the night away and enjoy being part of the vehicle recycling community and celebrate together.

Haydn said: “Everyone is invited to attend the awards regardless of whether or not they enter. Such events offer the chance to meet up with old friends and meet new ones. We also realise this is a great way to reward staff and celebrate their achievements. 

A great amount of work is involved in organising this gala night fitting for such a great industry. All we ask in return is for everyone to attend, have a great night out and enjoy themselves!”
