Solutions for material handling in the metal industry.

The metals processing industry has diverse and demanding requirements relating to the processing and transportation of metal in various forms, including pipes, slabs, coils, and liquid metals. While safety is the main focus for any operator in this industry, sustainability is fast becoming a strong driver for change.

In common with many other industries, operators in metals processing – particularly steel and aluminium producers – are gradually adopting digital solutions to help them increase safety and productivity. Some operators have begun the shift to using electrically powered equipment such as forklifts as part of their handling processes.

We can help you to reduce running costs and increase safety with a flexible, durable range of fit-for-purpose equipment including forklift trucks, terminal tractors and reachstackers – all of which can be specially adapted for challenging environments and demanding loads.


All Kalmar counter balanced machines, including reachstackers, empty container handlers and forklifts have been updated to meet safety standard EN 1175:2020 to ensure that working with a Kalmar machine is as safe as it can be.




You have a choice of lifting capacities up to 72 tonnes, attachments and a range of diesel power drives with 3 emission levels and battery powered drives using 2 different technologies (Lead Acid and Lithium-ion). They are known for their outstanding build quality, ease of operation and for being easy to maintain and service and have many safety features as standard.


Our reachstackers can be fitted with numerous specialist attachments so you can move a variety of loads of up to 130 tonnes per machine or 260 tonnes when working in tandem, safely and efficiently. You can even significantly reduce your carbon emission by up to 40% with our Eco Reachstacker.

Terminal Tractors

We now have a wide range of terminal tractors specifically designed to be used in a variety of material handling applications. With a choice of 4x2 and 4x4 models, gross container weight (GCW) of up to 150 tonnes and 5th wheel loads up to 36 tonnes and 2 power sources, either either diesel or our eco-efficient Lithium-ion powered electric drive.
