Cargotec Corporation: Kalmar celebrated ground breaking ceremony to expand its Ottawa site in Kansas, USA


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, officially broke ground on an expansion project for
the Kalmar Ottawa manufacturing plant in Kansas, USA, on 11 May 2016. Key
improvements will include the refurbishment and expansion of the facilities
to improve employee safety, security, efficiency and well-being.
Additionally, Kalmar will construct a test track for testing and on-site
customer events. The Ottawa plant is focusing on the assembly of Kalmar
Ottawa terminal tractors for the Americas region.

Dave Wood,
Vice President, Sales, Marketing&Service, Terminal Tractors, Kalmar Americas,
said, "This expansion reflects our commitment to long-term success at Kalmar
Ottawa. We strive to improve our resources, processes and personnel, to
maintain and grow our legacy as the dominant global manufacturer of terminal
tractors. Perhaps just as important, it is a visual reminder of our
commitment to the community where it all began more than 60 years ago."

"Being able to safely test and demonstrate our trucks' capabilities in a
real-world environment was a key part of our expansion plan, saidAlan Wilson
, Director of Operations. The course gives us an onsite proving ground for the
Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors. Operators will be able to practice
turning, backing and manoeuvring the terminal tractor in a dedicated area,
apart from manufacturing and staging areas."

As the world's leader in terminal tractors offering the most comprehensive
range of models for warehouse and distribution operations, ports and rail
terminals, Kalmar's commitment to continuous product development has resulted
in many industry firsts. Besides being the original manufacturer of terminal
tractors, Kalmar Ottawa was the first to offer machines with an automatic
transmission, a rear door entry, integral air conditioning units, power cab
tilt and ABS brake systems. Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors were also the
first on the market to receive DOT/EPA certification - a paramount
classification for distribution and industrial customers whose operation
entails shunting trailers between yards via public streets and roadways.
