SWARCO – Parking & eMobility UK (formerly known as the APT Controls Group) has re-located its head office to new premises in Hemel Hempstead.
It says the move was prompted by the increasing business demands of SWARCO’s companies and brands, which include APT Skidata, Evolt, Veri-park and APT Security Systems – all developers of solutions for the safe management and access of vehicles and people in SMART cities and environments.
The company calls the new head office a London base for SWARCO, where it can welcome and host both UK and international visitors, giving employees a modern office environment, with state-of-the-art customer demonstration, training and conference facilities.
The 22,000 sq ft unit also gives SWARCO more space for its growing technical and customer care departments, and more space for holding stock which will reduce customer order lead time.
The move follows the re-branding of the APT Controls Group to SWARCO – Parking & eMobility UK, which is now established as SWARCO Group’s second UK division alongside SWARCO Traffic Ltd, leading supplier of traffic management products and services including traffic signs and control systems.
Sean Dunstan, Managing Director of SWARCO – Parking & eMobility UK, says the move ensures it can comfortably cater for both new and existing business, “as a business that has been steadily evolving we always have an eye on the future,” he says, “and the new premises gives us exactly what we need today with a fantastic working environment.
“It also gives us the facilities to demonstrate to clients how our new products work in practice,” he says. “And it enables room for expansion so that we can continue to offer a first-class service.”
