Turkish company inks deal with Kalmar

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is to supply leading Turkish equipment rental company Maktas Makinali Tasima (Maktas) with a total of six Kalmar Eco Reachstackers. The order was booked in Cargotec's 2019 Q4 order intake, with delivery scheduled to be staggered through Q1 of 2020.

Established in 1979, Maktas offers rental and sales of both new and used forklifts and other related lifting equipment as well as spare parts and maintenance services. Maktas will offer the new equipment to customers in combination with a comprehensive servicing agreement.

The Kalmar Eco Reachstacker is an easy-to-maintain and eco-efficient solution that can reduce fuel consumption by up to 40% compared to older machines without compromising on productivity. It also features smoother acceleration, less cabin noise and lower emissions for an enhanced driver experience. The solution is becoming increasingly popular with customers around the world, driven by the need to reduce fuel consumption and reduce the overall impact of their operations on the environment. To date, more than 200 units have been sold.

Jürgen Wurzer, Vice President, South Europe, Kalmar comments:

“Maktas has a long and successful history as a Kalmar dealer stretching back more than two decades. We are delighted that they have selected the eco-efficient Kalmar Eco Reachstacker to support their business activities.” 

Ender Erkul, Founder and Owner, Maktas comments:

“We have been working with Kalmar equipment for many years and it is known as a trustworthy, high-quality brand among our own customers. We chose the Kalmar Eco Reachstacker for its ability to deliver outstanding performance with significantly less fuel consumption.”
