Scheidt & Bachmann USA, Inc. (“S&B”) and Butts Ticket Systems (“BTS”) announced the signing of their channel partnership agreement whereby Butts Ticket Systems will become a sales, distribution, and service provider for new S&B customers in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US.
Headquartered in Cochranville, Pennsylvania, BTS has been operating a customer-focused printing business since 1965 that caters to the Parking & Transportation industries. In 2013 BTS expanded their capabilities into the technology space by signing a distribution agreement with one of the global leaders of multi-space parking solutions. As part of this new relationship with Scheidt & Bachmann, BTS will now be able to sell and support additional off-street parking technologies and expand upon an already strong presence for both BTS and S&B in the Mid-Atlantic region.
For Scheidt & Bachmann, their partnership with Butt Ticket Systems aligns with their revamped Go-To-Market strategy of selling and supporting their products in select regions through a distributor-based model here in North America. Until recently, the company had operated exclusively with a “manufacturer direct” approach throughout the US and Canadian markets.
“We are thrilled to have this latest opportunity with Butts Ticket Systems” said Bill Geraghty, CAPP, Managing Director for Scheidt & Bachmann USA. “Mitch Butts and his team are an extremely talented group of professionals that also share our passion for delivering advanced parking technologies and a great customer experience. I’m excited to be working with them.”
Mitchell Butts, President of Butts Ticket Systems stated "We are proud to partner with a reputable PARCS manufacturer like Scheidt & Bachmann. For over 50 years, S&B has set a standard in the PARCS space, and we aim to carry on that tradition by increasing the S&B footprint while also providing our customers with a value-added local touch. S&B's suite of proven hardware and software solutions will be a welcome addition to our portfolio and a great benefit to our customers."
Scheidt & Bachmann says similar announcements with additional key channel partners are in the works for other select markets around North America as they continue to enhance their Go-To-Market strategy in ways that benefit both their customers and the business as a whole.
The family-owned company with its headquarters in Moenchengladbach, Germany was founded in 1872 and is now managed in its fifth generation. In the four divisions Fare Collection systems, Signalling Systems, Petrol Station Systems, and Parking and Leisure Centre Systems, Scheidt & Bachmann are setting worldwide standards. The Parking Systems division dominates the international car park market by nearly 22,000 installations; it is the system provider for more than 75 airports worldwide. Scheidt & Bachmann provides with its brand “entervo” integrated, modular general solutions consisting of up-to-date JAVA software and innovative equipment.
