Kalmar’s extensive range of materials handling equipment including reach stackers, container handlers and forklift trucks will now be available through NTP Forklifts which has offices all across Australia.

Kalmar Oceania vice president Peter McLean says the new partnership is the perfect complement to Kalmar’s current dealer base.

 "With the rapid growth in sales of Kalmar mobile equipment in Australia over the last five years, it is vital we expand our service network to support our growing customer base," he says.

"NTP Forklifts are the premier industrial forklift dealer in Australia and we are confident they will be the perfect fit for the Kalmar Oceania Dealer Network."

NTP Forklifts CEO Damien Garvey says the Kalmar brand is the perfect fit to the company’s current portfolio.

"As a leading supplier of material handling solutions to the Australian market, it is important for us to have on offer a complete range of leading global brands, providing our customers a sense of security when choosing a company and brand to partner with," he says.

"When working with containers and/or heavy loads Kalmar equipment has been the brand of choice in Europe for many years.

"This brand confidence has now been reflected in Australia where Kalmar achieved a significant market share of 44% in 2013 in the 16 tonne plus category, proving that the quality and reliability of the product has been well and truly recognised."

"We very much look forward to this new alliance and representing the Kalmar range of products."
