“We are happy to embrace the Schmit Parkeersystemen team within our international Scheidt & Bachmann family”, says Martin Kammler, Managing Director of Scheidt & Bachmann. “This decision provides us with the opportunity to get closer to a highly innovative and technology-leading market as the Netherlands, also enabling us to offer even better solutions to our global operating key accounts.
