Editor: How long have you been busy with mechanical parking systems? Answer: For over 20 years.
Editor: What was the biggest project in this time? Answer: The automatic smart towers - with a contract volume of 100 towers throughout Europe. The contracting partner was the Mercedes subsidiary MCC Micro Compact Car.
Editor: What was the highest project at this time, and I mean the probably highest system in the world? Answer: The Skygarage Hamilton Scotts in Singapore with a height of over 110 meters. The vehicles park in the apartment, safe behind glass. The manager Miss Ong Chi Chi has implemented a great concept.
Editor: What was one of the most interesting projects during this time? Answer: The "Meilenwerk" in Düsseldorf. An automobile theme park, unique in its one hundred year old Ringlock shed. I congratulate the Halder family for the great idea and implementation.
Editor: If you have been in the business for a long time, then have you already worked with reputable construction companies? Answer: Yes, these include the well-known construction companies such as Hochtief, Baresel, Bilfinger, Leonhardt Weiss, Goldbeck, Max Bögl, Ed.Züblin, Strabag. Also to mention the many medium-sized construction companies and general contractors, builders - which form the backbone of our economy.
Editor: Does your new group have such long experience and skills? Answer: Yes, this partner already handled Europe's largest automatic parking system with 612 spaces turnkey in 2002, and since then has installed and managed several thousands of parking spaces.
Editor: What makes you different from your competitors with your new products and services?
Answer: We see the car parking systems from the user's point of view, there are markets that are much bigger and have developed much better than some in Europe.
Editor: What is the reason for this?
Answer: The product doublestacker is negatively in mind: the slanted platforms of the past were often not userfriendly - difficult to drive and bad to walk on . Corrosion protection was, as has been shown, insufficient in some regions. This is the difference between customer and user orientation.
Editor: Owners of double stackers complain about the low corrosion protection of the past. Critics say that this today is a lucrative spare parts business?
Answer: I do not want to comment further.
Editor: Is a redesign and renovation of old and rusty doublestackers worthwhile? What alternatives are there?
Answer: This can not be answered in a general way. It's a price question. If you want to spend several thousand euros per parking space, you can also decide to buy new systems using state-of-the-art technology. We are currently developing a brand new model 2017 that can also be installed in the old and flat pits with a small ceiling height. It has a wide range of advantages over the old systems - so we come back to customer satisfaction.
Editor: It's noticeable that you are the first vendor in the market with standard parking space load of 2.200 kg, comfort platforms, tire-friendly side sheets and, and offer.
Answer: These are pragmatic and customer-oriented approaches. Our products are characterized by an exceptionally high usability.

Editorial: Your group also works with TÜV SÜD together? Answer: After installation You can/ need a surveyor review. This can be done by authorized institutions.

Editor: We wish good luck with user oriented car parking systems
