Parkare began trading on 1st September 1988 as Alfia Services Limited, a third party maintenance company. Following customer demand, the company quickly developed into a manufacturing company, producing their first Pay and Display machine in 1989. By 1992 the company had introduced their range of fully automatic Pay-on-Foot equipment which was an immediate success and has now been installed in many hundreds of sites nationwide. In 2008, Alfia joined Mabyc and Ibersegur to create the Parkare Group and have now launched their new Lynx Pay-on-Foot and Tempo Pay & Display ranges. Employing people in Spain and in directly-owned branch offices in France, the United Kingdom, Chile, Mexico and Peru, ParkareGroup distributes its products in 20 countries through various partnerships, creating a powerful global network.
In 2014 CAME acquired Parkare - the parking technology and parking meter specialists.
