Liebherr produces around 2.2 million refrigerators and freezers annually and is therefore one of the market leaders in Europe. Nearly a quarter of these appliances originates from Lienz in Tirol, Austria where Liebherr-Hausgeräte Lienz GmbH develops and produces refrigerators, chest freezers, as well as combined refrigerators and freezers. In addition to refrigerators and freezers for private use, manufacture of appliances for professional use is one of the focal points of the company. They combine application-specific solutions with the highest energy efficiency and innovative product design.

Energy efficiency and environmental protection

With its extensive product program of energy-efficient refrigerators and freezers, Liebherr-Hausgeräte Lienz GmbH is making an active contribution to environmental protection. Liebherr was the first company to convert its entire range of refrigerators and freezers to the environmentally friendly refrigerants R 290 and R 600a. They are HFC/CFC-free and do not have any damaging influences on the ozone layer, nor do they contribute to the associated greenhouse effect. Additionally, highly efficient cooling components considerably reduce energy consumption of the appliances.
