HIAB Sister Company Celebrates Production of 50,000th Kalmar Terminal Tractor

You’re quite likely to see one of our truck mounted HIAB cranes, Moffett forklifts and Multilifts on the road just about every day you’re on the highways and byways across Canada. But one thing that you won’t normally see unless you’re tooting around a large warehousing facility is an “Ottawa” style Kalmar terminal tractor. Cargotec, the parent company for the HIAB, Moffett and Multilift branded products is also well recognized for these purpose built vehicles.

Recently, Cargotec announced the production of its 50,000th terminal tractor at its manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Kansas. The achievement is significant in its own right, but even more so when you consider that the 50,000 mark was reached far faster by Cargotec than its competitors—a sign of Cargotec’s expertise in producing world-class materials handling equipment.

As David Wood, Cargotec Director of Terminal Tractors in North America stated, “Our market leadership in terminal tractors is the result of our dedicated people, willingness to adapt to customers’ needs, and ability to produce productive, cost effective machines.”

Congratulations to everyone at the Ottawa plant for this amazing accomplishment!
