Posted on 12/07/2022 Array

In this month’s blog we want to share with you news of our recently appointed Company Directors, which represents a new chapter for the Parksafe Group; and promises to drive some exciting changes for not only the team but also our valued partners and customers.

Founded in 1997, Parksafe have supplied the industry for over 30 years and established ourselves as a leading supplier. We work with the UK and Europe’s largest fleets, supplying and manufacturing a comprehensive range of reliable, quality assured vehicle safety equipment that have been designed to improve safety, increase efficiency and reduce cost.

Our vast experience of working in the industry has provided us with a wealth of technical and commercial knowledge of both OEM and aftermarket products. This allows us to offer a complete service, including consultancy, R&D, installation and training backed up by exceptional aftersales service and support.

Parksafe are proud members of FORS and SMMT, which allows us to keep up-to-date with the latest industry trends to support vehicles with innovations. We’re also ISO9001:2015 accredited for our Operations and Manufacturing Processes & ISO27001 accredited for our Information, Data & Security Processes.

In 2021 Parksafe became the ‘Parksafe Group’ to reflect the organisation’s growth and its various trading divisions, as follows:

  • Parksafe Automotive – 1000s of vehicle safety products
  • B2B Online Shop – for 24/7 Trade Orders with next day delivery
  • Parksafe On Demand – for Fleet Operators to manage fleets safely, efficiently and cost effectively
  • PSEV – To help fleets with the transition to a greener fleet.

Mick Barber, Liam Barber, and Peter Oughton, the three directors of Parksafe Group

As the newly appointed Operations Director, Peter Oughton, said ‘I am really proud to be the part of the management team here at Parksafe Group. We are a dynamic organisation that has the customers interest at the top of the list. We have a fantastic team and I am really excited for what the future holds.’ Peter brings more than 20 years of proven track record in his knowledge on development and innovation. Before joining Parksafe he was head of Technical and Operations for some of the UKs leading automotive companies in our industry.

Liam Barber, Parksafe’s new Sales & Marketing Director, is extremely excited about the potential to further promote the Parksafe’s brand as result of these changes and to increase its status as the ‘go to’ supplier for vehicle safety equipment. He said ‘ I am delighted to be part of the family business and to continue to put in scalable processes and sales strategies to support Parksafe Group with growth plans.’

Liam joined the company shortly after graduating with a degree almost 9 years ago, his first responsibility was logistics and shortly after he joined the sales team finishing as Head of Sales & Marketing.
Speaking about the two new Directorships, Mick Barber, Managing Director, said ‘Liam and Peter have become pivotal members of the team and I am delighted that they have both joined me as a Director. I am confident that we will continue to build on our success and drive the strategic vision forward efficiently.’ Of the appointment of his son, Liam, Mick also expressed his delight at having his son beside him on this journey.

Undoubtedly, Parksafe’s success has always been down to the loyalty of its customers and followers and we want to take this opportunity to thank you all for that. The road ahead looks very bright for the Parksafe Group, with much opportunity for growth and innovation as we continue to supply high quality vehicle safety products and we hope you will continue on this journey with us.
