Trevor Perfonic: Owner & Operator
In the late 70s when I was in elementary school my dad owned Moffat’s Auto Wreckers on Mitchell Island in Richmond. All through the early 80s while attending high school, I worked part time at Acme Auto Wreckers which was also on Mitchell Island. After graduating from high school in 1984 I went onto an automotive apprenticeship in Ladner and in 1986 I started to recycle scrap vehicles as a hobby. In 1988 I received my Auto Mechanics Ticket and in 1991 I incorporated my hobby into a part-time business.
In 2004 I left Auto Mechanics and switched to Heavy Duty in 2007, receiving my Heavy Duty Mechanics Ticket. I also started as a Longshoreman at Local 502 working as a mechanic out at Deltaport. In 2011 I was asked to be an instructor at BCIT for the Heavy Duty Trade which I still am doing. Through all of this, I have maintained my vehicle recycling business that started out as a hobby.
About Delta Scrap
Delta Scrap is a family run business that has been servicing the lower mainland since 1986. The staff is made up of Trevor Perfonic and his three kids, a teenage daughter and two teenage sons. All of the recycled scrap metal is processed through Richmond Steel. When the condition is right, some vehicles are donated to local schools. There the scrap vehicle can be used for students to learn and work on or in some instances some are donated to be repaired and sold so the school can keep the profit for their auto shop programs.
