EasyPark Group acquires e-park
EasyPark Group has acquired digital parking service e-park from IVIAL, part of Spanish parking operator Setex Group. This acquisition signifies the strengthening of EasyPark Group’s position as one of the leading providers of smart parking services in Europe and in Spain.
− We have been working on this for quite some time and are pleased we have reached a positive outcome. The acquisition of e-park demonstrates the rapid growth trajectory of EasyPark. We are committed to delivering the same outstanding services to motorists, parking operators and municipalities in Spain that EasyPark has become well known for across Europe, says Johan Birgersson, CEO of EasyPark Group.
EasyPark’s smartphone app provides millions of registered users with the quickest and most efficient solution to find, remotely manage and pay for parking and EV-charging in Europe.
EasyPark enables cross-border parking, by seamlessly allowing users to park in neighbouring cities or countries without having to download another app or changing any settings such as the method of payment or phone number. EasyPark also offers the Find & Park feature to users in Madrid, Barcelona, Albacete, Tarragona, which allows drivers to find the best available on and off-street parking, closest to their destination, guiding them along the most efficient route to the parking spot.
Following the acquisition, Setex Group will use EasyPark as a provider of parking solutions and thereby gain access to innovative features and services in locations where they have parking operations.

We are very happy to gain access to all the advantages and functionalities offered by the EasyPark application, says Jaime López de Aguilar CEO of Setex Group.
