Kalmar has celebrated a production milestone with its 6,000th machine rolling off the production line of its Shanghai plant.

Kalmar, a division of Finnnish machinery maker Cargotec, opened its Shanghai facility in 2005.

Kalmar head of Greater China Alex Tang says the 6,000th machine, a reachstacker, is destined for Bodi International in Mongolia.

“Over the last two years, Kalmar has supplied Mongolian customers with more than 10 reachstackers,” Tang says. “With the continued expansion of bilateral economic and trade cooperation between Mongolia and China, the logistics demands of both countries are also increasing rapidly. Therefore, we anticipate even greater opportunities for collaboration in the future.”

 Alf-Gunnar Karlgren, Kalmar’s VP, Counter Balanced, sees the Shanghai plant as a vital part of our global manufacturing network, focusing on the assembly of reachstackers, empty container handlers and terminal tractors for our customers around the world. 

“Achieving 6,000 units produced is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved and yet another demonstration of the high esteem in which the Kalmar brand is held among leading global terminal and logistics operators."
