A focus on safety
At Kalmar, the safety of people working with our machines is always at the top of our minds, which is why meeting global safety standards is important to us.

The mandatory European safety standard EN 1175:2020, which sets the electrical and electronic component standards for industrial trucks, has been updated to improve the safety of these machines while in operation; this update is valid from April 2023. All Kalmar counterbalanced machines, including reachstackers, empty container handlers and forklifts, have globally been updated to meet this new standard to ensure that working with a Kalmar machine is as safe as it can be.

By fulfilling our commitment to EN1175:2020 you will benefit from numerous safety improvements which now come as standard on all Kalmar reachstackers, forklifts and empty container handlers.
