Liebherr Group

The Liebherr Group is a German manufacturer established in 1949 by Hans Liebherr, headquartered in Biberach an der Riss, Baden-Württemberg. The Liebherr Group's holding company is Liebherr-International AG in Bulle, Switzerland, which is entirely owned by members of the Liebherr family. Current-generation family ownership is held by Willi and Isolde Liebherr, listed among the billionaires of 2005.

Beginning with the production of affordable tower cranes, Liebherr has expanded to aircraft parts and household appliances such as fridges. The company is a major supplier of Airbus S.A.S.. Liebherr is also among the producers of the largest mining and digging tools in the world, such as loaders, excavators and extreme-size dump trucks.

Over the years, the family business has grown into what is today a group of companies, employing a workforce of approximately 25,000 in more than 100 companies on all continents.

Apparently in December 2004, one German site put Liebherr's dumpers in first and sixth place as the world's biggest, while their largest excavator got fifth position. [http://www.mining-power.de]

Liebherr currently produces one of the world's largest mining trucks, the T 282 B. They also recently introduced the new nine-axle model LTM 11200-9.1 which received the prestigious award of Development of the year 2007, for being the world's most powerful mobile crane, complete with convert|100|m|ft|0 telescopic boom.

Liebherr has locations in many countries: Germany, Britain, Ireland, and the United States to name but a few. The factory in Ireland manufactures container cranes and is located in Killarney. These cranes are exported through the local port of Fenit to ports all over the world.
