GIB secures IdentiPark contract for Ion Orchard project in Singapore

GIB Automation Pte Ltd has secured the contract to supply IdentiPark, the brand name for an intelligent parking guidance system manufactured by Nortech International, as the system of choice for the Ion Orchard development.
This prime development is located along the prestigious Orchard Road in Singapore. IdentiPark is designed to ease congestion within a parking facility by directing vehicles to the nearest available parking spaces at the same time offering power savings to the facility and making it more attractive to visitors.

Ion Orchard, jointly owned by CapitaLand and Sun Hung Kai Properties, is a USD467million development on the prestigious Orchard Road and will boast over 1 million square feet of retail space and super luxury homes, attracting between 80,000 to 105,000 visitors per day. CapitaLand is one of the largest listed property companies in Asia, with headquarters in Singapore. Their portfolio spans more than 70 cities in 18 countries. Sun Hung Kai Properties is one of Hong Kongs largest property companies having created some of the most memorable icons of the Hong Kong skyline, including International Finance Centre which is currently the tallest building in the territory.

Commenting on their success in being awarded this prestigious contract, Mr. Benjamin Gan (Managing Director GIB) said I have looked at many suppliers of parking guidance systems, even trialling one in Singapore, before I decided on IdentiPark. Many factors made the choice an easy one for me including: low power consumption, ease of installation, flexibility in design and the whole green concept adopted by Nortech International in the design of this system. Coupled to this is Nortechs commitment to their customers which is evident through their involvement in all aspects of the project management and their hands-on approach to any new project.

In reply, Mr. Barry Kemp (Operations Director Nortech) echoed the sentiments of GIB about IdentiPark.

We are proud to be associated with GIB as our distributor, and together have worked hard to differentiate the IdentiPark system from the competitors and offer our customers a value-add solution.

About Nortech International (Pty) Ltd

Nortech International (Pty) Ltd was established in 1969 to import parking garage equipment and components. However, by 1980, it was designing, producing and manufacturing its own vehicle and access-related products, which were exported to European markets, and later to North America, Australia and the Far East. Nortech is now a recognized independent global supplier of manufactured components for vehicle and traffic detection, people counting solutions and access related products. It has become one of the worlds largest suppliers of inductive loop detectors, with an installed base in excess of 1 million channels, all manufactured at its ISO9001: 2000 facility.

The Nortech people counting solution was born from the need to accurately count people and vehicles in all conditions, through entrances, in passages, walkways and sidewalks. Unlike our competitors, HeadCount is not limited by environmental conditions such as background lighting and outdoor weather conditions and can operate even in the event of power-downs and blackouts. HeadCount operates 24/7, 365 days a year to ensure data with absolute integrity.

Nortech receives accreditation for its products in line with international requirements such as CE, C-TICK, FCC, Highways Agency, RTA, DoT, EPA, ISO and RoHS, underlining the companys commitment to quality. The company also seeks to differentiate itself from competitors through service excellence offering: quick response; competitive pricing; personal sales and support; customization and application-specific design; industrialization; innovative solutions; technical support and warranted products.
