Kalmar has secured an order for 15 medium electric forklift trucks from SEAC which will be deployed across SEAC's 11 manufacturing facilities in France. 

With a lifting capacity of 17 tons, the Kalmar medium electric forklift trucks will offer SEAC all the performance of a powerful diesel truck, but without emissions, noise or vibration. They feature a time-saving diagnostic system and easy maintenance as well as Kalmar's ergonomically designed EGO cabin to provide an enhanced driving experience.

The machines will be used to handle concrete products such as slabs and beams, transporting them from the production line to storage and finally loading them onto trucks for delivery to customers.

"We have been working with SEAC for several years and are delighted that they have selected our powerful, eco-efficient electric forklift solution to support their operations. Going forward, once the new machines are in place we will provide SEAC with world-class preventive maintenance support through our vast service network, which covers all of their locations across France," said Hervé Helluin, Service Operations Manager of Kalmar France.
