Kalmar staff celebrate a production milestone
Kalmar is celebrating a significant milestone with the production of its 70,000th Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractor. Destined for long-standing customer Penske Truck Leasing, the truck was completed last month at Kalmar's US manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Kansas. Employees and guests gathered at the plant to celebrate and watch the final assembly of the truck.

Paul Rosa, senior vice president, procurement and fleet planning at Penske Truck Leasing, was on hand to mark the occasion.

"Penske Truck Leasing is pleased to take delivery of the 70,000th unit from our valued supplier, Kalmar Ottawa. We commend Kalmar Ottawa on this milestone and we look forward to continuing to work together to provide our customers with the most reliable and innovative trucks for their fleets," he said.

Doug Queen, VP solution sales, Kalmar Ottawa Terminal Tractors, commented: "We continue to lead the market because of our dedicated employees, large dealer network, customer centricity and superior offering. We invented the terminal tractor in 1958 and now the Kalmar Ottawa name is the most widely known terminal tractor brand in the country, synonymous with the highest quality, value and reliability. Penske Truck Leasing has purchased a significant number of our trucks over the years, so we're honoured to share this important milestone with them."

The Kalmar Ottawa T2 Terminal Tractor is one of the most widely used trailer handling solutions among port, intermodal and distribution customers. Available in DOT/EPA-certified and off-road configurations, the T2 is a purpose-built truck featuring an ergonomic cab design, fast fifth-wheel lifting and easy-access service points to speed up routine checks and servicing.

Kalmar now also offers a fully electric version of the Kalmar Ottawa, called the T2E. It features the latest in battery technology, a fully electric powertrain that produces zero emissions at source and a comfortable driving environment.

Penske Truck Leasing, headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania, is a leading global transportation services provider. The company operates 300,000 vehicles and serves customers in more than 1,000 locations in North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia.
