NEWPORT NEWS, VA — Liebherr USA, Co. hosted visitors from across the globe at their first Customer Day. The company highlighted and demonstrated a diverse range of products across all 10 segments including earthmoving, material handling technology, deep foundation machines, tower cranes, mining, mobile and crawler cranes, maritime cranes, concrete technology, components, as well as refrigerators and freezers.
New Products for the US Market
Liebherr USA, Co. unveiled various new products to the U.S. market including the TA230 articulated dump truck, LTM 1110-5.2 all-terrain crane, LTM 1300-6.3 all-terrain crane, LR 1700 crawler crane, LR 1400 SX crawler crane, LR 1250.1 unplugged crawler crane, LRB 23 piling & drilling rig, 36 XXT truck mounted concrete pump, 80-LP line pump, and PR 776 dozer.

Having formally moved into the expanded campus in April 2020, Customer Day also provided the opportunity to reveal the $60-million enhancement to the facilities: They are comprised of a 60,000-square-foot administrative building, an 82,000-square-foot workshop and training facility, a 92,000-square-foot parts distribution warehouse including retail operations, a one-story 7,500-square-foot wash bay building, and a guard house.

The new campus will help Liebherr serve customers across various product segments. It significantly increases production operations for concrete pumps and repair capacity for mobile and crawler cranes, as well as for construction equipment. The new shop is also equipped to handle the growing numbers of Liebherr earthmoving equipment.

“The investment in our new Liebherr USA headquarters and facilities represents our strong commitment to the U.S. market," said Managing Director Kai Friedrich. "The new state-of-the-art repair and training facilities as well as the new central warehouse are— in terms of size and technical standards — advanced and comply with current and future requirements of our customers, covering all 10 product segments. This, in combination with our highly qualified and motivated workforce, perfectly serves and supports our customers in the USA."

Event for Customers, Partners, and Families
The event launch allowed Liebherr customers to join in facility tours and experience product presentations, including a live application show of various new machines. Over 30 exhibits throughout the facility grounds were on display, and product experts were on hand to explain special features of the new machines and give insights on using established machines.

As the first of three events taking course over the weekend, the Customer Day preceded Liebherr’s Recruiter and Counselor Open House and Family Day.
