The Earthmoving division manufactures a wide range of products with many different applications. Liebherr achieves a very high production depth by developing its own drive and control technology systems. The divisional controlling company is Liebherr-EMtec GmbH based in Kirchdorf an der Iller (Germany).
Eight production plants worldwide
The Earthmoving division develops and manufactures an extremely wide range of products at eight sites in Europe, Asia and South America. These products include wheeled excavators, crawler excavators, duty-cycle crawler cranes, special deep-foundation machines, crawler tractors, crawler loaders, pipe layers, telescopic handlers, wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks as well as material handling machines. These machines cover the entire spectrum of traditional earthmoving work. Other application areas include horticulture, landscape gardening, agriculture, forestry and special deep foundations. The application areas of material handling machines extend from use in the raw material and recycling industries and timber handling through to goods handling at inland and deep-water ports.
Key technologies and components from Liebherr
In order to maintain the high quality of products, important components for earthmoving equipment are also manufactured and produced in-house. These components include, for example, the drive and control technology systems comprising diesel engines, hydraulics and gearboxes.
Qualified customer services and service network
A high level of availability is important for construction machinery. Therefore, a full international service network ensures qualified customer services at every operational site along with the supply of original spare parts.
