New excavator, reliable long-term partner
The R 924 crawler excavator was purchased as a replacement for another Liebherr machine. The R 902, which dated back to 1997, had reached over 14,000 operating hours. "Our fleet needed to be updated. The R 902 has served its purpose. Our apprentices now use it as a training machine", said Constant Bruetschy, manager of the family-run company.
Various manufacturers were contacted during the process of updating the R 902. Liebherr stood out from the crowd with an individually configurable solution, which met the customer-specific requirements.
TP-Bruetschy has had Liebherr machines in its fleet since the 1970s and since then has maintained a long-term partnership with the locally-based manufacturer and its sales office in Colmar. "My father had already said, ‘If we go with Liebherr, we are choosing quality’, but there was also the proximity to customer services and the quick availability of spare parts," adds Constant Bruetschy.
The quality and reliability of the products were always important factors in terms of TP-Bruetschy‘s customer satisfaction and the proximity to the Liebherr subsidiary in Colmar makes responses to the company’s queries simpler and faster.
TP-Bruetschy, with its head office in Schlierbach in the Haut-Rhin department in France, was founded on 1 April 1974 by Julien Bruetschy. Constant Bruetschy has been managing the company since 2009. The company is primarily active in the earthmoving, civil engineering and demolition sectors. Today the family-run company employs 23 people and is continually evolving. For example, in 2014 TP-Bruetschy purchased land to construct building rubble recycling facilities.
