Over the last eight years, Q-Free, along with our local partner MetalParking (part of the Metalpress Group) out of Bat Yam Israel, has provided over 50 parking guidance systems (PGS) at locations in Israel ranging from shopping center installations like the Azrieli Group Malls, to mixed-use installations such as the Millennium Tower, and employee installations like Intel in Haifa. “We have been very fortunate to work so closely with such a great local partner,” says Dave Radford, Vice President and Managing Director of Q-Free Boston. “Over the years we have delivered and installed over 40,000 Q-Free single space sensors with their support. MetalParking is an integral reason why Q-Free is one of the top providers for PGS systems in Israel.”
In a country driven by pricing levels, high accuracy and system robustness are still an important project requirement. Q-Free PGS products are all manufactured in North America, guaranteeing the required high production standards. The ultrasonic technology of the Q-Free sensors additionally provides the highest accuracy in the market. Ofir Janach, COO at MetalParking agrees, “In the last eight years, we have proven to the Israeli market that the Q-Free PGS systems provide the highest accuracy and are very robust while also meeting competitive pricing levels. These are the reasons why we were selected to provide a system for the Ben Gurion Airport, which is the main international and busiest airport in the country.” The installation of over 2,000 Q-Free single space sensors and wayfinding signs was recently completed. This is a showcase installation for Q-Free and MetalParking with the potential addition of future garages and surface lots.
With installations in the private and public sector, Q-Free is excited about the future of this long-term relationship with MetalParking, delivering reliable PGS systems for efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly transportation to the Israeli market, thus changing the movements of life one parking installation at a time.
