Liebherr-Component Technologies AG has started construction work on a new plant in Dalian (China). This will strengthen the Liebherr-Components product segment and further expand its global foothold. Bearings, drives and hydraulic cylinders are due to be produced there by the end of 2022. For that, the Liebherr Components (Dalian) Co., Ltd. will build new halls with three production lines, as well as office and auxiliary buildings on a floor area of around 44,000 m².
A huge potential to supply a wide range of industries
"In order to meet the increasing demand of Chinese plant manufacturers for components for the wind industry and construction machinery sector, we are expanding our local production capacities. In the coming years, we will also supply other industries and applications," explains Fabian Wahl, Managing Director of Liebherr Components (Dalian) Co., Ltd.
Liebherr has been present at the Dalian site since 2002 and is currently manufacturing drive components and earthmoving machinery. With this construction project, Liebherr is not only tying together the production of components in one plant but is also making one of the largest investments in the Dalian region in recent years.
