Our experiences over the past few years have shown that with Kalmar at our side we are able to focus on our core business and continue to add value for our end customers,” said Jon Stenberg, Head of Procurement at Holmen Iggesund.

“We decided to partner with Kalmar to ensure that our handling equipment can perform at its best at all times thanks to excellent maintenance services, skilled operators and the latest in digital technologies.”
