Our History

More than half a Century of Parking Solutions


Empark was founded in 1966 as a pioneer in the car park sector in the Iberian Peninsula. In the decades of the 1960s and 70s, we extended our presence and consolidated the activity of regulated on-street parking. During the decade of the 80s we grew with the merger and purchase of other companies. In 1994 Empark began its activity in Portugal. In 2007 operations started in Turkey and since 2008 we have been present in UK.


Empark UK Ltd was established following the award of the contract to manage all of the public car parking at London Stansted Airport. Following this contract in July 2010 Empark was awarded with the contract to manage all of public and staff car parking at Edinburgh Airport and in 2011 we gained contracts at Croydon University Hospital NHS Trust and the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.


Empark is a leading operator in the UK, and an active member of the British Parking Association.
