Total Freedom. Total Control.

We know the parking industry. And we know what works. Federal APD is a leading manufacturer of automated parking systems across North America and around the globe. Founded in 1953, Federal APD has been around since the days when most parking operations employed little more than a cigar box.
It's a fact: Fifty years ago we pioneered the system that made the variable-rate "self-park" facility possible. This created an industry, and led to innovations ranging from the first intelligent barrier gates all the way to today's sophisticated facility management software. Today, Federal APD continues to supply the imaginative technology and comprehensive service that enables parking facilities to meet all their business objectives.

When it comes to adding value, our distributors are something else

From sales, installation and employee training, to troubleshooting and maintenance, to helping you expand your system when the time is right, count on support when and where you need it.

Access and Revenue Control Systems

Training.jpgWithout proper training, your employees can't work productively. We understand the importance of bringing your employees up to speed with a customized training curriculum that is not only effective, but also readily accessible either online, on-site or in a classroom at our factory.

Intelligent Video

Intelligent Video.jpgThere's nothing new about the use of video in parking facilities. What's new is the deployment of intelligent video systems that go beyond  license plate recognition. lnstead of merely recording randorn events, these "smart" video systems determine which events call for immediate action, then communicate that need to employees and/or management in real-time. The end result: enhanced customer service, increased facility wide security, and an overall improvement in operational efficiency.

Business Continuity

Federal Signal's interoperable SmartMsgT. cornmunications platform offers an efficient, economical, facility wide strategy that enables you to reach  anyone, anywhere, and on any device--from phones and radios to PCs, PDAs and more.
