Parking firm expands into US with team growth and Pennsylvania premises
Swindon-based parking firm Metric Group is expanding its reach in the US by opening premises in Pennsylvania and expanding its team.
Specialising in designing, manufacturing, and servicing parking hardware, software, and infrastructure, Metric Group already has a global customer base.
After a decade with Amano McGann as its exclusive distributor in the US, Metric Group has now regained control of its Stateside operations.
The new Pennsylvania premises will serve as a strategic hub to efficiently cater to Metric Group’s 80-plus customers across various states, from New York in the east to Georgia in the south and Ohio more centrally.
With 630 parking meters currently in operation, the company holds contracts in Maryland, Washington, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Victor Abrams, a familiar face in the parking industry and a former Metric Group employee, has returned to the company as a technical lead.
Based in Pennsylvania and having spent over 15 years in the parking industry, Abrams initially joined Metric Group in a seasonal role more than a decade ago and stayed with the company for five years.
Abrams said: “It’s great to be back with the Metric Group and see the company investing in its future here in the USA. We work with really interesting people and organisations at some of the nation’s most iconic sites. I’m looking forward to working more closely with them all to see where we can add value with new technology and improved features.
“My focus is building relations with current customers and networking – becoming more involved with the communities we serve and ensuring they get better bang for their buck from their investments. I will make sure our terminals and meters are used to their full potential.”
