The Parc Group was founded 25 years ago as a group of parking equipment distributors who sold Federal APD equipment. With the demise of 3M’s parking division, (formerly Federal APD), one could only wonder what would happen to a group that was formerly connected by a common vendor.
I heard from Larry Wanat that the group met this past weekend and decided that they had a lot still in common and were going to proceed as an organization that assisted their customers in areas of parking, access control, and systems and software. Their membership includes some of the powerhouses in the industries distributor network so its good that they are pressing on.
Larry also mentioned that a new release was forthcoming that would inform 3M/FAPD equipment owners how they could contact group members to ensure their equipment was properly maintained going forward.
All the best to this fine organization
