Kalmar Mekaniska Verkstad

Kalmar Mekaniska Verkstad

Kalmar Verkstad AB ("KVAB") was a Swedish train and automobile manufacturer in Kalmar, Sweden that made the Tjorven and Terminal. KVAB was founded in 1902 and closed 2005 by Bombardier. KVAB's core business was trains, and they built all kinds of locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars for both Swedish market and export.In the mid-sixties, KVAB also produced small trucks, boats, parking decks and cars for road use.Tjorven was a small delivery van based on the DAF 44, Swedish Mail bought a lot of them for mail delivery, and Terminal was a vehicle intended to be used for transporting goods in ports between ships and railway. One odd detail was that the door was located in the front. It had a V8 diesel engine, automatic gearbox, and semi-trailer coupling with built-in automatic air and electric connections. At the rear a forklift was mounted, so the truckdriver could load and unload goods from the trailer.
