Sotefin SA, Switzerland, founded in 1956, is a world leader in the design and construction of computer-controlled fully automated car parking systems. Sotefin SA began its activity by patenting (1959) and developing a trolley for
the automated parking transfer of vehicles which proved to be extremely reliable and accurate over time, to the extent that some systems are still operational today.
