APCOA Parking has taken over the operation of the Printworks Manchester car park with immediate effect and the car park, which had been closed for a short period, reopened on Monday 19th July.
There are no changes to parking charges, but payment options are enhanced with the introduction of APCOA’s digital platform – enabling pre-booking and online Season Ticket purchasing – as well as the APCOA Connect app, a convenient way to pay.
Season tickets previously issued by NCP will be honoured.
APCOA’s Regional Managing Director UK&I, Kim Challis said: “APCOA is delighted to take on the management and operation of this car park, which is so essential to the businesses and visitors to the city centre and the Arndale and Printworks area in Manchester. The APCOA team has worked closely with our client to make all the changes necessary to re-open the car park as quickly as possible and we’re pleased to have been able to do this to coincide with the relaxation of some of the COVID restrictions.
“This is also further evidence of APCOA’s commitment and investment in the North of England, following the establishment of our Customer Service Centre in Wigan and our Research & Development Centre in Newcastle.”
The Printworks car park, in the heart of Manchester, is owned by one of the funds managed by Amsterdam-based Orange Investment Managers. Richard Kuiper, Asset Manager, said: “We are pleased with the partnership with APCOA who have enabled the Printworks car park to re-open. APCOA brings a wealth of services which will directly benefit our customers including digital and multi-channel booking platforms providing pre-book, autopay and flexible season tickets to reflect the modern user environment, coupled with their mobility hub solution which will deliver easy access lockers, EV charging and more.”
