The company, which was formed in 2008 and is based in Ipswich, now manages more than 30 car parks across the country and has two further contracts currently in the pipeline as well as ambitious plans for further growth in 2013.

Total offers a full range of car park operation services, including site management, enforcement and land development, with its clients including hospitals and retail parks.

The latest additions to its portfolio of sites include three in Manchester and another in Formby, near Liverpool.

Essy Eslamian, owner and managing director of Total Car Parks, said: “We were delighted to secure four new sites.

“National growth is key to our success if we want to compete with other brands in our industry, which is one of our main goals as a company. We have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline and remain confident of continued growth.”

Total Car Parks’ growth has been achieves against the backdrop of a challenging environment in which some operators have struggled to adapt to new enforcement requirements following recent changes in the law on the clamping of vehicles.

Mr Eslamian added: “It’s been an exceptional year of growth for us. We’re so pleased with how many strong new relationships we’ve established over the past 12 months.

“Growth has always been an integral part of our business strategy but I couldn’t ever have imagined the speed at which we’ve been able to achieve this level of expansion.”
