Shumani Industrial Equipment is the official distributor of Kalmar reach stackers and empty-container handlers in South Africa. “We currently hold the biggest fleet of Kalmar port equipment in South Africa,” highlights MD Victor Nemukula.
The Kalmar Essential reach stacker gives more value for money without compromising on quality. Built on the proven G-Generation platform, these machines are reliable, robust, and highly efficient. They are available with either EU3/Tier 3, EU4/ Tier 4F or EU5 or Korea Stage V emissions standards-compliant engines.
“Kalmar equipment is available for outright purchase or short-term rental at affordable rates. Most companies that require this equipment either do not have the capital outlay to purchase outright or do not want to put it on their balance sheet,” explains Nemukula.

To cater for these clients, Shumani has the financial muscle to offer longer-term rentals if needed. As the largest owner of Kalmar equipment in its short-term rental fleet, Shumani can rent out these units on a flexible basis for up to 24 months.
“We are the only 51% black-owned, Level 1 BBB-EE in the cou ntry that can offer forklifts and warehouse equipment, construction equipment and cleaning equipment on both outright purchases, long- and short-term rental in South Africa,” comments Nemukula.
Over the past eight years, Shumani has built up its in-house technical capabilities to provide services around the country. It strives to offer its customers 24/7 service and a two-hour response time in major metropolitan areas for all its equipment.
Looking ahead, the port and warehousing market continues to lead the way in terms of growth. “We are already seeing robust growth going into 2023 in these two market sectors,” reveals Nemukula. “New products will be announced this year once the necessary logistics have been finalised,” he concludes.
