Liebherr, together with established service partner Frontline Cranes and Construction Machinery FZE, has opened a new customer service centre for mobile cranes, construction machinery and maritime material handling equipment in Dubai. The new foreign base was officially opened on 29 June 2005 and further consolidates Liebherr Group’s presence in the Arabian Gulf region. The Dubai site strategically extends the existing network of dealers and agents in the Middle East, which comprises Saudi Liebherr Company Ltd. in Jeddah, subsidiaries in Riyadh and Dammam and Liebherr Service AG in Baghdad in Iraq.
The new base has a total site area of 10,000 m² and boasts an industrial plant with state-of-the-art repair and assembly facilities. It measures 77 x 20 metres and has a height of up to 14 metres. The base enables Liebherr to offer its customers in the region an enhanced level of service and optimises the overall range of services provided, including repairs and the supply of spare parts. Competent on-site staff are in close contact with the individual manufacturing plants for mobile cranes, construction machinery and maritime cranes.
