History of "Monozukuri" (Manufacturing)

Parking Equipment

1964

The development of tower parking systems started when we paid attention to the difficulties of parking on the street, along with the dissemination of passenger cars.

  • 1964 Delivered rotary & vertical type car parking system "Rotary Park"

    Delivered a parking system capable of accommodating 16 cars to the Motoyawata Branch (Chiba Prefecture) of the former Sanwa Bank (currently the MUFJ Bank).

    The prototype system was constructed at the Takarazuka plant of a former machinery manufacturer before delivery.
  • 1969 Delivered multi-storied car parking system "Z Park"

    Introduction of a two-level type doubled the number of vehicles that could be accommodated.

  • Increased need of underground parking systems

    Accompanying the construction boom for rental office buildings due to the development of urban areas nationwide, it became difficult to secure ground-level parking spaces, and underground parking started to attract attention.

  • 1978 Developed parallel conveyor type car parking system (enclosed rotary type) "TRANS PARK" and developed sliding type car parking system "CROSS PARK"

  • Entering a period where functionality & design characteristics were required

    In the beginning of the 80s, the number of parking system installations increased rapidly due to the effects of the bubble economy. In addition to space savings, safety and operability, the design characteristics also became an important factor for determining whether to purchase the system.

  • 1989 Delivered "New ROTARY PARK"

    Embedded devices and sensors prevented malfunctions, which further improved the safety. Based on the catch phrase "from garage to lobby," the design of the vehicle entrance and exterior were improved. As a result, we received the first Good Design Award for parking systems.

  • Entering a period where elevator systems became mainstream

    The arrival of the condominium boom increased the use of elevator systems as a model to solve noise and vibration problems, which occurred when a parking system was operated.

  • 1990 Developed elevator type car parking system "ELEPARK®"

    This system is for accommodating vehicles on parking shelves on both sides by placing a vehicle on a pallet and elevating it by the elevator function in the center. Taking advantage of the industry's fastest "maximum speed of 120 m per minute" at the time, realized quick entry and exit of vehicles.

    The ET-F still remains popular today as our main product through repeated modifications from the first system, such as improving the added value including excellent earthquake resistance, barrier-free, and charging for electric vehicles!

  • 2016 Developed "Loop Park"

    This new product allows all the pallets to move freely inside the system, and the position and number of the entrance and exit of the vehicle can be determined freely. Since the vacant space in front of the system can be minimized, this system can be installed in narrow spaces or L-shaped property, where it used to be difficult to install a system.

In the future

While technological innovations are progressing, such as autonomous driving and electrification of vehicles, we will continue to perform activities to create high value-added products and services which meet the needs of the generations, aiming to be a "manufacturer of parking systems which connects the future of people and vehicles."
