Kalmar has officially broken ground on a new facility in Ljungby, Sweden. The new Business, Innovation and Technology Centre in Ljungby will focus on strengthening the company’s expertise in digital business development, research and development, prototype production and testing of mobile equipment and related services.

Dan Pettersson, Senior Vice President, Mobile Equipment, Kalmar, said, “This is a very important day and the starting point of a new era for Kalmar. This long-term investment will help us utilize the vast possibilities provided by digitization in developing our offering further. We will gather our extensive competence at one facility and strengthen our way of working in digital business development, zero emission machines and automation in order to keep our pole position also in the future.”
