The Liebherr Group has acquired concrete pump manufacturer Waitzinger, based in Neu-Ulm, Germany. The relevant contracts were signed October 19, 2012 by the Managing Directors of Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH, Bad Schussenried, Germany, and Waitzinger Baumaschinen GmbH.
The Waitzinger takeover completes Liebherr's product range in the concrete technology sector. Waitzinger Baumaschinen GmbH was founded in 1991, and today employs a staff of nearly 60 in Neu-Ulm. It is a company which specialises in the development and production of truck-mounted concrete pumps, trailer concrete pumps and truck mixer concrete pumps. From today these products will now also be distributed via Liebherr's international sales and service organisation.
This is the perfect complement to Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH's product range. To date the company based in Bad Schussenried has developed and produced mobile and stationary mixing plants, as well as truck mixers and conveyor belts for truck mixers. The acquisition of Waitzinger has afforded Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH the status of full-range supplier in the concrete technology sector. Liebherr's goal is to expand the concrete pump product range and thus further improve its international competitive position in the concrete technology sector. For Waitzinger's Neu-Ulm site and its employees, this offers opportunities for growth and secures prospects for the future.
