Kalmar has officially broken ground on a new facility in Ljungby, Sweden.

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.”
