Automated and mechanical parking alternatives have, over the years, become more and more in demand in the US as land becomes less available and more expensive and cars more plentiful. While a newly emerging industry in the US, in other parts of the world it has been established for more than half a century.
WHAT IS AMPA?
AMPA was officially incorporated in February 2001 with two primary purposes:
To serve the public by providing safe and reliable alternative solutions to urban parking needs, and
To facilitate the growth and prosperity of the automated and mechanical parking industry in the United States.
We want to help solve your tough parking needs where a conventional garage is not well suited. It is our commitment as an Association to help ensure that the right solution is provided in the right application to bring a high level of customer satisfaction.
The primary benefits include having the opportunity to:
Evolve and facilitate the growth of the automated and mechanical parking industry overall.
Very importantly, establish standards and guidelines related to the technical aspects of the industry.
Formulate (and coordinate with related organizations such as ICBO and NFPA) building and fire codes that could impact the industry’s safety and growth.
Increase the quality of urban and congested living.
Become further educated and stay “up to the minute” with the latest developments in the industry.
Network with key contacts within the Association to enhance one’s own company’s marketing efforts.
Have greater exposure of one’s particular company, products and services within the industry through AMPA marketing materials and publications and / or direct presentation by members of AMPA at other industry related Conventions and industry shows.
Evolve and / or manage proper legislation at a Federal level to ensure alignment with the Association’s and the industry’s purposes.
