ESB Kranverleih Transport und Hebetechnik GmbH started trading in 1981. Today its fleet comprises eleven Liebherr mobile cranes and the workforce has increased to 14 employees. The company has plenty of orders for its mobile cranes from various segments, with prefabricated house assembly, steel fabrication, prefabricated component assembly, mechanical engineering, industrial buildings, machine relocations and special civil engineering projects among its main applications.

The rising demand from the market for a larger crane and full order books for its 100-tonne crane led to the decision to purchase an LTM 1200-5.1. The 200-tonne crane will be used for assembling prefabricated components and top-slewing cranes and also for moving machines and equipment in the upper load capacity range. The two Liebherr plants in Biberach are among its customers.

ESB Kranverleih relies on time-tested mobile cranes from Liebherr. "Liebherr provides the best service in the industry and the main factory is just around the corner from us. The very fair sales pitch and good advice we receive also mean that we will remain a Liebherr customer", says Karl Engeser, Managing Director at ESB Kranverleih.
