Kalmar teams up with Rexroth for electric development

Equipment manufacturer Kalmar is collaborating with Bosch Rexroth to develop fully electric versions of its reachstacker and heavy forklift products.

The launch of the electric versions of the Kalmar reachstacker and Kalmar heavy forklift is scheduled for 2021.

The electric reachstacker and heavy forklift solutions will join Kalmar's growing portfolio of fully electric equipment, which already includes light and medium-duty forklift trucks, Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors, shuttle and straddle carriers, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and yard cranes.

Kalmar plans to offer electric options for its entire equipment portfolio by 2021.

Stefan Hultqvist, vice president, forklift trucks at Kalmar, said: “With the advances in battery and driveline technologies, electricity is now a viable option for heavier and more challenging forklift applications. Through the collaboration with Bosch Rexroth, our goal is to bring to market a heavy forklift solution that will help our customers hit their productivity targets in an environmentally friendly way.”
