Ampco System Parking Awarded Management of the Port of Tampas Parking Operations

The Tampa Port Authority (TPA) has awarded Ampco System Parking a multimillion-dollar, three-year contract to manage the extensive parking operations at the Port of Tampa, Floridas largest and most diversified seaport.
Ampco is a division of ABM Industries Incorporated (NYSE: ABM), which, through its subsidiaries, is the United States leading facility services contractor.

The Port of Tampa is a major seaport for both cruise and cargo ships. In 2008, it handled more than 750,000 cruise passengers and nearly 43 million tons of cargo.

Ampco will be responsible for managing and operating TPAs 3,000 parking spaces. The ports parking facilities are also used by visitors to Channelside Bay Plaza, an entertainment center and popular nightspot adjacent to the port, featuring restaurants, clubs and other retail operations. Ampco began operations at the port on July 1, in time to handle visitors to Channelside Bay Plazas annual Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza.

Following an extensive selection process based on a number of factors including price, previous work history, and references we awarded Ampco the contract because they were highly competitive and we are certainly impressed with the outstanding job weve seen them do at Tampa International Airport, Richard Wainio, Tampas port director and chief executive, said.

Together, the Port of Tampa and Channelside Bay Plaza generate significant economic activity for the Tampa Bay area.

We are delighted to have this opportunity to expand Ampcos good relationship in Tampa, and we look forward to continuing to provide the highest quality parking services to the many residents, visitors and patrons in the Tampa area, said Mark Muglich, executive vice president, Ampco System Parking.
