Newport News, Virginia-based Liebherr USA Co. has expanded its footprint in the United States with the opening of its newest location in Lodi, California.
The company says this new location will help to better service customers in the western region. The Lodi facility operations will include sales, service and repair of new and used mobile, duty cycle and lift version crawler cranes, as well as piling and drilling rigs.
The new sales and service facility will serve as a hub to provide technical assistance, field service, yard storage for consignment cranes, stock and replenish parts, perform equipment repairs, stock inventory for sale and deploy rental fleets. The facility includes service bays, a warehouse and office building.
“This cooperation will derive further advantages to Liebherr crane customers in the western region of the United States, enhancing the level of customer service and product support, and offering a greater selection of cranes,” says the company.
The facility in Lodi is located in California’s Central Valley, about 84 miles west of San Francisco and about 36 miles south of Sacramento. In terms of logistics, this allows Liebherr to respond to customer inquiries quicker and accelerate the distribution of parts and services in this region, the company says.
“A lot of effort and dedication went into preparing this location for success. The Lodi branch will tremendously improve our abilities to service and support our local customers in their respective time zone,” says Tobias Haemmerle, divisional director of Liebherr USA Co. crawler cranes and foundation equipment division.
Established in 1949, the Liebherr Group, headquartered in Switzerland, is a leading manufacturer of earthmoving equipment and a supplier of user-oriented products and services in many other fields. The family-owned company employs more than 40,000 people in more than 130 companies worldwide in 50 countries on every continent.
