The Liebherr family business was established in 1949 by Hans Liebherr and is today not only one of the world’s leading manufacturers of construction machinery but is also an acknowledged supplier of technically innovative products to a number of heavy engineering, transport and construction market sectors.

Since 1949 the family business has grown into what is today a group of companies, employing a workforce of 32,600 in more than 100 companies on all continents.

The Liebherr Group is divided into independent operating company units to ensure proximity to the customer and the ability to respond flexibly to market requirements. Operative management of the production and sales companies for the individual product segments is in the hands of divisional control companies.
