Pelle Olsson, Head of Board Production at Iggesunds Bruk: "Kalmar’s solution will allow us to focus on our core business and add value for our end customers. As a producer of some of the world’s best-performing paperboard, we want to work with reliable partners who are true leaders in their own areas, and in this respect Kalmar fits the bill perfectly.

 

"This contract provides us with peace of mind as we get premium equipment for log handling, their maintenance, operators as well as the latest software to optimise our logistics processes"
