ParkPiù, company based in Cantù, is experiencing a particularly flourishing moment, with constant growth and new projects in Australia, Holland, South Africa and China. In the future there is also a contract for the historic Alfa Romeo: "We will re-create a parking lot for the storage of historic cars" announces Carlo Galli, CEO and owner of the company together with Maurizio Savio, Simone Zappa and Paolo Sangalli. And this thanks to a patent that allows them to build automatic parking lots in which the driver does not have to do anything, just use a card for parking and pick up the car.
ParkPiù has patented last year a small machine that can autonomously and automatically park cars. The system consists of a cart controlled by Wi-Fi that is positioned on the tires. Two automatic arms grab the wheels, the car is lifted and carried into the parking lot.
The company currently has about 13 employees and plans to hire new staff, in consideration of the strong increase in orders. «We have a big project in Johannesburg in the field - says Galli -
