Cargotec Corporation: Kalmar to deliver nine forklifts to support Stora Enso's European sawmill operations


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received an order for nine forklift trucks from
Stora Enso, a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging,
biomaterials, wood, timber and paper. The machines will be delivered through

The order comprises eight Kalmar DCG160-12 medium-sized forklifts and one
Kalmar ECG55-6 electric forklift, and is a continuation of the long-term
relationship between Kalmar and Stora Enso, who have relied on Kalmar
equipment to support their Central European sawmill operations since the
early 1980s. The trucks will join the Kalmar rental fleet (totalling
approximately 80 machines) at Stora Enso. They will be used to handle loads
of sawn timber at Stora Enso's network of sawmills across Europe, which
includes sites in Austria, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Jürgen Wurzer
, Managing Director of Kalmar Austria, says: "Kalmar is a long-term supplier
to Stora Enso, which has outsourced its mobile equipment fleet to Kalmar
Austria since 2004. The fleet consists of approximately 12 logstackers, 30
medium-sized forklifts, 30 light forklifts and 12 back-up machines. This
cooperation helps Kalmar develop the reliability and efficiency of its
products and allows Stora Enso to focus on its core business."

Kalmar's next-generation forklift trucks are designed to offer the best
possible return on investment over their entire lifespan, and are ideal for
demanding applications such as timber handling. They combine low fuel
consumption and superior lifting performance with easy maintenance and
excellent reliability. The ergonomic EGO cabin provides maximum visibility
and comfort for operators, and features a driving seat that can be turned 180
degrees to ensure safe operation when handling heavy or bulky loads.
