Kalmar Australia has experienced rapid growth over the last five years and recognises that its expanding customer base requires exceptional after sales support and customer service. To support this growth, Kalmar Australia has recently expanded its national dealer network, partnering with NTP Forklifts. This addition supports the already strong Kalmar Oceania Dealer Network consisting of Pacific Materials Handling, Liftrite, Globequip, Daysworth and AB Equipment, the network spans Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific region.

As one of Australia’s’ largest privately owned materials handling companies, NTP Forklifts have been operating for some 30 years and employ in excess of 100 factory trained technicians. NTP are well equipped to provide fast and efficient service, boasting a network of comprehensive workshops, an extensive mobile service fleet and an impressive spare parts holding.

“NTP are industrial truck specialists with many years’ experience participating in both the conventional and container handling forklift markets, the new partnership is the perfect complement to our current dealer base. With the rapid growth in sales of Kalmar mobile equipment in Australia over the last five years, it is vital we expand our service network to support our growing customer base. NTP Forklifts are the premier industrial forklift dealer in Australia and we are confident they will be the perfect fit for the Kalmar Oceania Dealer Network,” says Peter McLean Vice President Kalmar Oceania.

Damien Garvey, CEO of NTP Forklifts says “As a leading supplier of material handling solutions to the Australian market, it is important for us to have on offer a complete range of leading global brands, providing our customers a sense of security when choosing a company and brand to partner with. When working with containers and/or heavy loads Kalmar equipment has been the brand of choice in Europe for many years. This brand confidence has now been reflected in Australia where Kalmar achieved a significant market share of 44% in 2013 in the 16 tonne plus category, proving that the quality and reliability of the product has been well and truly recognised. Our new partnership with Kalmar now completes our offering of premium products to the Australian market and is a perfect fit to our current portfolio.
