Control Systems, Inc. (“CSI”) was founded in 1988 by Barry Lazowski to service the parking industry. Over the intervening years, while maintaining its headquarters in West Hartford, Connecticut, CSI has grown to include branch offices in New Jersey, Maryland, and Southern California and soon in Massachusetts.


CSI provides complete parking revenue and access control for on-site or remote facility management. CSI distributes, installs and services parking, access and revenue control systems (“PARCS”). CSI provides its customers with twenty-four (24) hour support, outstanding service and the ability to maximize customer’s revenue and operations. CSI’s technical expertise includes system and software design, documentation, and technical equipment repair.

Control Systems, Inc. services customers across diverse industries such as hospitals, airports, universities and all levels of government in locations ranging from Boston to Washington, D.C. and California in the West.


CSI entered the industry by distributing PARCS manufactured by Federal APD, a division of Federal Signal Corporation. CSI remained a distributor for Federal APD for twenty-four (24) years. CSI achieved the distinction of being one of the largest Federal APD distributors in the country. In 2012, Federal APD sold its parking division to 3M and CSI became a distributor of 3M PARCS.


CSI continued as one of 3M’s top PARCS distributors. In 2014, 3M determined that the parking division did not meet the company’s expectations and closed its PARCS business. At that time CSI became the first company in the USA to become a distributor of DESIGNA PARCS and facilitated its emergence into the market. CSI continued to distribute DESIGNA products as one of its top distributors between 2014 and 2017.


In November of 2017 CSI became a value added re-seller for TIBA Parking which has quickly become the most competitive manufacturer of PARCS in the USA. Our customers are very enthusiastic about the agility, simplicity and efficiency of TIBA products. TIBA and CSI have a good synergy which has ignited growth.


CSI has partnered with ZipPark, Inc. which was established by Barry Lazowski in 2001 in response to the growing need for technology for event and valet parking operations. ZipPark has become a leader in these industries. ZipPark has a broad line of products which leverage leading-edge technologies to address the specific revenue control and management needs of parking operations in all major verticals. ZipPark is proud to have been selected as the parking technology company for the stadiums and arenas of many professional sports teams, top-tier entertainment venues and shopping centers, international airports, luxury hotels, Class A office buildings, world-class hospitals, and municipal garages. CSI is poised to excel in shaping the future of parking using the latest innovations in a smart way.
