Proud Partner with Kalmar Global

Darr Equipment was proud to join the show floor once again with partner Kalmar Global to highlight the latest in industrial equipment offerings. Did you know that every fourth container in the world is moved by a Kalmar solution? Staff from our Houston locations were on site to meet with customers, host a happy hour, and give away goodies.

Debuting at our booth was Kalmar in a Box – a virtual training experience even our CEO Robert Engstrom had to try. Kalmar in a Box uses virtual reality technology to provide operators with a totally immersive training experience.
