Creating fascinating things? That’s standard with us!

Do you enjoy working in production and are you keen to demonstrate your technical abilities on our advanced products? Just operating a machine is not enough for you, and you would like to gain an insight into the whole production process?

Our production and manufacturing employees are always involved in the technical goings-on behind the scenes. Plus our modern working environment offers you many opportunities for further training.

What is waiting for you here:

Highlights of the area of employment production

While working in the production you will get insights into a large variety of tasks and you will have variable workstations due to job rotation.

You can benefit from good payment (bonus, piece work system and partially shift system).

This area of employment combines several topics in one: working in shifts, working with machines, automation and robotics.

To have a direct contact with the products means you contribute to a large extent to the product result by yourself and you can see your achievements right away.

A high manufactural depth and dealing with technical and financial issues makes it interesting to work in the production of a Liebherr company.

The tasks that are waiting for you:

  • Product assembly, disassembly or repair of elementary and complex assemblies or sub-assemblies, in compliance with cost, quality and deadline requirements
  • Optimizing production processes including development of machine programs
  • Support and development operation strategies to achieve company objectives related to production
  • Mechanical manufacturing and processing (e.g. CNC)
  • Planning, organizing and supervising the overall production activities

Possible competencies you will use in this area section:

  • Technical education e.g. as skilled worker or apprenticeship
  • High school diploma (or the equivalent), diploma in mechanical engineering
  • Recognized technician/mechanic
  • Heavy equipment license or other certificates (as required)
  • Working experience in the field of assembling
  • High technical understanding and knowledge (mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulic and electrical systems)
  • Specific equipment knowledge depending on assigned product segment
  • Depending on the job a good physical fitness, shift-working or having a good head for heights is required

Projects

  • Workplace ergonomics
    Everyday working conditions should be adapted to the activities being performed and the needs of our employees. Our goal is to create the absolute optimum working conditions. The most important features we provide on our premises include – ample daylight in working areas, – preventing reflections and glare on work surfaces, – enough space for office furniture, machinery and equipment, – sufficiently wide circulation routes and height-adjustable desks to create additional opportunities for movement, by alternating between sitting and standing activities.

  • State-of-the-art technology – Welding Robots
    Welding is one of Liebherr’s core competencies. The complexity of demanded welding seams is high and therefore our welders are highly qualified specialists in their field. Due to this fact, robots will never substitute the sophisticated skills of our welders, but: a welding robot can perfectly support them in their daily work by performing less complex tasks in an unbeatable speed. Because of their welding expertise, our team leaders are doing their bit in the acquisition process of such a robot and therefore are dealing with additional tasks:Defining requirements for the installation of the robot including clamping devices, choosing the right workers for on-the-job training on the welding robot, defining safety measures, optimizing working processes on a regular basis and conducting acceptances at the supplier’s premises. In order to guarantee the perfect functionality of a multiaxial welding robot we have to attach great importance to the programming of the machine. Precise programming helps to minimize errors and is avoiding bigger interventions into the program through our welders therefore increasing efficiency. It is planned that our apprentice workshop will soon have a welding robot at their disposal, ensuring that prospective welding specialists are familiar with state-of-the-art technologies.

  • Supermarket principle in logistics
    Supermarket pull systems are used in lean management to link work stations that are not in a continuous flow. At the Liebherr plant in Telfs, Austria, these systems are used to link the main warehouse and selected assembly stations. In the logistics supermarket, heavy and small parts are prepared into assembly-ready sets. This enables continuous one-piece flow at the subsequent work stations. In addition, it reduces setup times and inventories on the assembly lines.

  • Optimizing the flow of communication – shop floor meetings at Liebherr
    With the introduction of shop floor management in assembly at our Liebherr plant in Telfs, Austria, many meetings and decision-making paths have become shorter. The entire workforce – from production workers to the CEO – is involved in regular shop floor meetings at various levels, thus ensuring a continuous flow of information and decision-making. In addition, relevant metrics are visualized and tracked on each level. In this way, we all pull together and help achieve the company’s goals
