Merger discussions involving Motorhog Ltd, Car Transplants Ltd and DH Systems Consultancy Ltd.

ctsfabmhdh Car Transplants Limited, Motorhog Limited and DH Systems Consultancy Limited are in discussion about combining their strengths and resources within the salvage, parts, technology and recycling industries. All parties believe this will create real benefit, creating an unparalleled offering to the insurance, bodyshop and vehicle disposal sectors.

The combined facilities, technology and geographical footprint will create a unique and fully-integrated solution to the market.

Motorhog and Car Transplants share the same high standards and compliant approach, with a commitment to the safe and responsible management and disposal of salvage. At the heart of both business models is the focus on removing the reputational risk to clients, the companies have achieved ISO 14001 certification. All three businesses have also achieved ISO 27001 certification.

The three companies will continue to work directly with their existing clients whilst working together to explore new business opportunities.

Dave Harcourt, Director, DH Systems Consultancy Ltd “We are delighted to be in merger discussions with the most progressive and successful salvage and dismantling companies in the UK and I am personally looking forward to working more closely with Richard’s and John’s teams at Motorhog and Car Transplants.’’

Another successful AGM for the BVSF!

yeahThe British Vehicle Salvage Federation held another very successful annual general meeting event on April 14th, again held in the magnificent Coombe Abbey Hotel near Coventry.

A record number of delegates this year descended upon the Coombe Abbey and the feedback confirmed that it was both enjoyable, interesting and of considerable benefit to all delegates. Over and above the actual AGM which conjured up a number of questions relating to the Salvage Code of Practice and air bags, a marvelous buffet lunch was enjoyed by all, following which four speakers addressed the audience. These included representation from the Fraud section of Lloyds Bank, a real eye opener to companies at risk from Fraud, both electronic and by telephone. The Tyre Recovery Association with whom the BVSF has now effectively joined forces in an attempt to implement a code of practice for the sale of part worn tyres. The Environment Agency relating to illegal operators, amongst a number of other subjects and Jason Cross from Fab Recycling talking about how to improve your business and make your customer WANT to come back to you. The first feedback to be received after the event read as follows… Many thanks for your kind hospitality at the AGM Seminar on Thursday. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner and some very good speakers during the day. Congratulations for putting on another great event. BVSF’s Roger West said, “It is these sort of comments that make the organisational hard work very worthwhile.” There was a themed evening meal loosely based on Downton Abbey (Aptly named Downtrodden Abbey) for the event, was excellent and for the second year running Table 1 got the murderer again (It was the cook!).

The evening was rounded off with the presentation of the Combellack Award to John Schofield and his team at Car Transplants, a very worthy recipient and a lifetime achievement award to Bernard Simpson of Simpson Brothers. Bernard has been retired from the industry for some years but was a member of the BVSF almost from inception and still shows huge interest in the industry, attending the AGM every year. The BVSF would like to thank Kevin Robinson of Lloyds Bank, Peter Taylor of The Tyre Recovery Association, Tania Tucker of the Environment Agency and Jason Cross of FAB Recycling for their excellent presentations, also they would like to thank the following special guests who gave up their time to attend the event. They are Les Elliott of Allianz insurance, Paul Hallet of BIS, Nigel Williams of BEN, Ali McQueen of the CARS Team, Mark Hyde of WAMITAB and Steve Rooney of Plum Publishing. Finally a big thank you goes to all the delegates who of course made the event the success that it was.
