Kalmar’s Gloria Reach Stacker Debuts in North America | Industry News

Kalmar launched its Gloria reach stacker into the Americas. The product was introduced at the annual Kalmar North American Dealer Meeting in October in Cibolo, Texas. The reach stacker can be used to for cargo-handling application in the container, intermodal, barge, and industrial-handling market segments.

With costs of ownership high on the operator's agenda, Gloria sets the benchmark, combining high performance with low running costs. A Gloria reach stacker has capacity of 45 tonnes and a capability to stack up to 6 high (5 high on the intermodal) is just part of the story. A choice of three ECO driving modes; power, normal and economy; means that up to 20% fuel savings can be achieved. Additionally, the automatic stop/start function can result in a further 10% fuel saving and a reduction in emissions.

Stefan Johansson, director, sales and marketing for Kalmar reach stackers and empty container handlers, said, "We are particularly excited about launching Gloria into the Americas markets. Our global strategy for market growth has been driven by meeting the critical demands of our customers and as a result we have enjoyed considerable success with the introduction of our fifth generation reachstackers. Gloria is a milestone in reachstacker design with numerous features that enhance productivity and significantly reduce the cost of ownership."
