Cargotec builds its 50,000th terminal tractor in the US

It took 41 years to build the first 25,000 units and less than 12 years to build the next 25,000

Cargotec has announced that the 50,000th terminal tractor was recently completed at the company's US manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Kansas.

This landmark achievement has occurred less than three years after the plant turned out its 45,000th unit, in April 2008.

The original Ottawa Truck Corp began production of fifth wheel terminal tractors in the late 1950s. In 1987 Ottawa purchased the Champion product line from American Coleman Co.

Ottawa itself became part of what is now Cargotec in October 1993 when it was purchased by Finland's Oy Sisu Auto AB. Subsequently Sisu merged with Valmet and then this combined Finnish outfit merged with Sweden's Kalmar Industries in 1994.

For the past few years Kalmar has been the ports and intermodal terminals equipment brand of Finland-based Cargotec group and today most of the tractors produced in Ottawa are branded Kalmar.

"For more than 50 years, Cargotec has been offering world-class trailer handling solutions for port, intermodal and distribution customers," said David Wood, Cargotec's Director, Terminal Tractors, North America.

"Our market leadership in terminal tractors is the result of our dedicated people, willingness to adapt to customers' needs, and ability to produce productive, cost effective machines."

The 50,000th machine is part of an order from Safeway, Inc for twelve 4x2 Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors. A customer for more than two decades, the national grocer deploys nearly 100 terminal tractors supplied by Cargotec at its distribution facilities in the US and Canada. All of the units will be delivered by the second quarter of 2011.
