Kalmar Industries has been awarded a record order of 247 terminal tractors from PSA Singapore Terminals, the world's largest container transhipment hub which handled 22.3 million TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) of containers in 2005. Kalmar will start to deliver the tractors to PSA Singapore Terminals in July 2007 and complete such delivery by the end of the year. Kalmar South East Asia will provide continuous support for parts and service to the customer.

Mr Leif Wallin, president Kalmar Trailer Handling, says, "Kalmar is extremely pleased to be partnering with PSA on such a high volume order. Kalmar local organization was critical to the customer decision and a valuable resource in gaining the order. Close cooperation between Kalmar factories in the USA and China will also play a vital role in our ability to supply the machines built to the customer specifications and in a timely manner.

The Ottawa, Kansas plant in the USA is Kalmar site for global terminal tractor development. This facility will complete all of the design and engineering work for the PSA order.
