History and development
Q-Park France is the subsidiary on a human scale managing 216 parking facilities distributed in 70 French cities.
In 2002, Q-Park has repurchased ParcoFrance, a company of the Bouygues Group. The enterprise then had 70 employees and managed 17 000 parking places. By integrating the Hollandais Group, the company immediately benefitted from its financial strength and, therefore, accelerated its development.
In 2015, after two repurchases, Sérimo in 2003 and Epolia in 2008, Q-Park France manages 216 parking facilities (103 550 places) and generates 123 million euros in revenue. A remarkable growth maintained and made possible by a team of 400 employees throughout the entire territory.
Q-Park France believes in a model based on a high quality commitment and a unique design - a distinctive key sign. Construction, renovation and management of parking facilities represent a challenging task that continues to evolve.
The development of Q-Park is based on its expertise, its quality, its responsiveness and its ability to adapt to the demands of its partners.
Q-Park France collaborates with communities and private actors in order to better meet new expectations of the clients, to respond to the changes of regulations, to improve the quality of life and mobility of the urban centres.
