The prestigious Amano range is a welcome addition to product portfolio

Amano, with its long-established Xparc range of pay on foot equipment, will partner the Metric Group which has been appointed its exclusive UK sales distribution channel.

Said Peter Aylward, Metric Group’s Managing Director: “The prestigious Amano range is a welcome addition to our product portfolio and creates an excellent opportunity for both companies over the coming years.

“The Metric Customer Support Team, which is the largest in the UK parking industry, will provide service and after sales support for all existing and new installations.”

The alliance follows on from a similar partnership formed last year when sister company Amano McGann became the sole distribution agent for Metric pay and display machines through the United States.

Appointed Business Development Manager for Pay on Foot Systems is Ron Buck, 53, who has been with Amano for two years. He became their Senior Consultant Revenue Systems based at their Gloucester office.

Prior to joining Amano, he was Senior Business Development Manager with Worldwide Parking Solutions (WPS) in Swindon for three years. He was instrumental in the installation of a cutting edge, web based pay on foot parking system at the high profile Chelsea Harbour development just over two years ago.

He believes Metric’s webASLAN Back Office will complement the sophisticated and high tech software within the Xparc system, which is at the cutting edge of pay on foot technology today.
