Liebherr USA Co., based in Newport News, Virginia, hosted visitors from around the world at its first Customer Day May 12. The company says it highlighted and demonstrated a diverse range of products across 10 industry segments including earthmoving, material handling technology, mobile and crawler cranes and components.

Among new products displayed by Liebherr USA were its 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 and its PR 776 dozer.

The company says it also was able to show off the expanded campus it began to occupy last April, revealing “the $60 million enhancement to the facilities” that include a 60,000-square-foot administrative building, an 82,000-square-foot workshop and training facility, a 92,000-square-foot parts distribution warehouse, a wash bay building and a guardhouse.

“The investment in our new Liebherr USA headquarters and facilities represents our strong commitment to the United States market,” Liebherr Managing Director Kai Friedrich says. “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.”

The Customer Day preceded Liebherr’s Recruiter and Counselor Open House Friday, May 13, and Family Day Saturday, May 14. “After two years of anticipation, we are honored to present our newly expanded facilities and products on such a momentous day,” Liebherr Managing Director Tim Gerhardt says. “This opportunity allows us to showcase Liebherr’s growth and dedication to our U.S. partners and customers.”
