Kalmar dealer partnership adds strength to BJB

With a strong heritage for manufacturing high-quality and robust equipment, Kalmar is a brand that is synonymous with cargo handling operations worldwide. Offering a wide range of equipment suitable for ports, terminals, distribution centres and heavy industry, Kalmar is brand that many in the logistics industry know and trust.

BJB Lift Trucks are now delighted to announce the prestigious Kalmar brand joins the portfolio of equipment on offer from the Grimsby-based firm. Since moving to larger premises in May, BJB have significantly expanded their operations and the extra space enables them to deal more effectively with larger pieces of equipment. BJB directors, Phil Flowers and Peter Harvey, travelled to the Kalmar factory in May to cement the new relationship. Sales director, Peter Harvey, commented: “Our ability to support the multi-modal logistics sector has been considerably strengthened by the addition of the Kalmar name to our portfolio of dealer partnerships. We have had a considerable range of Kalmar equipment in our fleet for a number of years so this dealer partnership, combined with the extra space we now have, definitely strengthens our business going forward.”

BJB will mainly be dealing with 10-33 tonne counterbalance forklifts, container handlers up to 52 tonnes and the full range of distribution and terminal tractors including the new T2 model being launched in April 2016. More new Kalmar models are looming on the horizon including the 5-9 tonne electric counterbalance forklifts which will be fitted with the EGO cabin.

Marketing manager, Nikki Hale, said: “BJB already has a great reputation for being a ‘one-stop shop’ when it comes to the range of services we offer so this puts us in an excellent position to be able to support Kalmar customers old and new!”
