A distinguished heritage

The foundations of a modern success story

Kalmar’s foundations lie deep in Finnish and Swedish engineering expertise, yet our organization is made up of many great businesses from around the world – all of which have contributed to the knowledge and expertise that got us where we are today.

Our story began with crane manufacturing in the Netherlands in the 19th century, and continued with our successful distribution tractor business in the middle of the 20th century in North America. As we entered the 21st century, our focus turned to Asia-Pacific, the region that has become more and more important for the future success of our business.
