SEAC orders 15 Kalmar electric forklift trucks

Cargotec-owned Kalmar has secured a large order for 15 medium electric forklift trucks from SEAC, a supplier of concrete products to the French construction industry.

The forklifts will be deployed across SEAC’s 11 manufacturing facilities in France. The order was booked in Cargotec's 2021 third quarter order intake, with the delivery of the machines scheduled to take place during the first quarter of 2022.

With a lifting capacity of 17 tons, the Kalmar medium electric forklift trucks will offer SEAC all the performance of a powerful diesel truck but without emissions, noise or vibration. They feature a time-saving diagnostic system and easy maintenance as well as Kalmar’s ergonomically designed EGO cabin to provide a superior driving experience, according to a statement.

Additionally, the machines will be used to handle concrete products such as slabs and beams, transporting them from the production line to storage and finally loading them onto trucks for delivery to customers.

“This investment in electrically powered forklifts to replace our diesel machines is an important step towards reducing the carbon footprint of our operations. After testing a single unit from Kalmar we were confident that their solution could provide the level of battery autonomy that our factory operations demand,” commented Jean Marc Elain, Director of Factories, SEAC.
