Kalmar has won an order of six Kalmar Eco reachstackers from leading Turkish equipment rental company Maktas Makinali Tasima (Maktas).
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.
Delivery of the equipment is scheduled to be staggered through the first quarter of 2020 and Maktas will offer the new reachstackers to customers in combination with a comprehensive servicing agreement.
Jürgen Wurzer, vice president, south Europe, Kalmar, said: “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.”
To date, Kalmar has sold over 200 units of its eco reachstacker as customers become more driven by the need to reduce fuel consumption and reduce the overall impact of their operations on the environment.
According to the manufacturer, the Eco reachstacker can reduce fuel consumption by up to 40% compared to older machines without compromising on its productivity.
It also features smoother acceleration, less cabin nouse and lower emissions for an enhanced driver experience.
Ender Erkul, founder and owner of Maktas, said: “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.”
