A UK chain that operates over 150,000 car parking spaces, in more than 500 towns, wanted to ramp up security across their city center-based facilities as part of a plan to double the size of the overall company.
The company manages a number of strategically positioned city center-based car park facilities, many of which hailed from the 1970s. They lacked appeal and were deemed un-user-friendly. The owners wanted to increase the number of car parking bays, safeguard the users from anti-social behavior, and make them more appealing to increase revenue generated from the hourly tariff.
EFAFLEX high-speed ‘shutters’ were commissioned for a number of their city center locations and installed at the entrance and exit points. Combined with CCTV, and door entry systems, these improvements increase user confidence and enable the facilities to be operational 24 hours a day.
EFAFLEX designs, manufactures, installs, and services high-speed doors for industrial and commercial applications. Founded in 1974, the company supplies to clients including food processing, manufacturing, clean room, cold store, and the chemical, pharmaceutical sectors. As the only manufacturer of high-speed industrial doors, EFAFLEX has been entered into the world market leader index and is one of the 461 top companies in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The privately-owned company has more than 1,200 employees worldwide. With its headquarters in Bruckberg, Bavaria, EFAFLEX is firmly established as the largest employer in the region. Furthermore, with ten subsidiaries on five continents, the company is developing international markets with more than 50 percent of their revenue now being generated outside of Germany.
