In 2004 we moved from our old offices in Penarth and relocated into larger premises with over 4000sq ft of workshop and warehouse space. Our offices are located above this workshop where we also have a design and Repair centre. Making this move enabled us to expand our services and develop our business into providing and supporting Car Parking equipment such as Pay on Foot and Pay and Display machines. This was indeed a natural progression; some of our key members of staff were already specialists in this field from previous work experience. We are now the UK sole distributors and installers for the Green Pro and Nortronic range of revenue parking systems. We currently have systems installed at a variety of locations all around the United Kingdom from Councils and Hospitals to private individuals, this list is expanding daily. We are active members of the BPA (British Parking Association) and an approved supplier through Link-Up.
