About Me

Thank you for your interest in mechanical parking systems and this portal about that subject.

My name is Leon Hamelink and I have been involved with mechanical parking systems for nearly 20 years now. I graduated at the Eindhoven University of Technology on this subject and with my engineering company I have since then developed different mechanical parking systems for both cars and bicycles. During these years I have visited many manufacturers throughout the world, studied and procured their products, and was involved with the realization of many parking facilities using a variety of technologies.

Based on my knowledge and experience I founded the mechanical parking department of VDL, a large industrial company in The Netherlands (7000+ empl.). And I am happy to say that VDL has been able to grow to gain a leading role in the Dutch market for mechanical parking systems. At the end of 2010 I left VDL and I now focus on advising real estate developers, architects and government officials on the implementation and procurement of mechanical parking systems.

As you can tell I have seen many aspects of the technology and the business. My mission is to share this knowledge with all professionals in the real estate business to help improve real estate projects through the use of these innovative systems.

Thanks again for your interest and I hope this portal will contain useful information for you.

ir. Leon J. Hamelink.
