Dubai, UAE, 4th July 2018: Secure Parking, the internationally renowned car park management company based in the UAE, signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Amano Europe, a part of Amano Corporation that was founded in 1931 and is the leading Japanese manufacturer of hardware and software for the parking industry.
In accordance with the agreement, Secure Parking will be the sole distributor in the UAE of Amano’s Xparc, a smart parking management solution with a clear focus on adaptability and smart mobility. It is highly user-friendly, allows for unlimited configuration, provides superior control and is equipped with the most recent electronic payment facilities.
Amano’s worldwide presence with an annual turnover in excess of EUR 1 billion brings global expertise to this partnership. Secure Parking, on the other hand, draws strength from its parent company Al Shirawi Group’s distribution market leadership to set the stage for a successful relationship.
The partnership will strengthen Secure Parking’s smart parking offerings and consolidate its leadership position as a complete parking service provider while creating new opportunities for Amano in the UAE. More importantly, the alliance will ensure greater convenience for end-users as they get access to the best products and services the industry has to offer.
Pramodh Idicheria, Chief Operating Officer, Secure Parking, said: “As part of Al Shirawi Group of Companies, Secure Parking is privy to an elite group that has successfully introduced and represent several international brands in the market. We felt the time is right to combine the group’s over 40 years of local market experience with our industry-specific knowledge and technical competencies to bridge the gap in a fragmented industry and ensure higher standards of services for our customers.”
Bert Peirsman, General Manager, Amano Europe, said: “The UAE has a big potential for smart parking systems, given the ever-increasing number of vehicles and its propensity for adopting latest technologies. We have new and innovative products to offer and a channel partner with a nationwide sales and service presence is integral to our growth strategy.”
Pamela Chikhani, General Manager, Secure Parking, added: “Secure Parking brings with it technical competencies, industry-specific knowledge as well as the right network of clients. The collaboration allows us to explore the natural synergy between the two companies. We couldn’t have hoped for a better brand to make our foray into distribution in the parking industry.”
Secure Parking UAE is a top-tier industry player. It has a history of sourcing new technologies to improve parking efficiencies and returns, including mobile technology, cashless systems, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) to name a few.
The company is currently operating car parks for key developments in Dubai and Abu Dhabi including City Walk Phase 2, Marsa Al Seef, Souk Madinat, Shams Boutik at Rheem Island, Abu Dhabi Global Market and Abu Dhabi World Trade Center, among several others.
