Liebherr recently completed two significant investments within Canada to support its customers and expanding business as well as product lines. Both the newly built, state-of-the-art mining remanufacturing facility in Acheson, AB along with the expanded facility in Burlington, ON represents a $24m further investment in the Canadian marketplace during 2015.
Within the new premises Liebherr-Canada Ltd. has invested in a state-of-the art major component remanufacturing facility which will service all of North America for primary Liebherr components and mining parts. The new Burlington branch also features a completely new equipment painting facility with an electrostatic paint system that eliminates overspray. An extensive central parts warehouse will connect seamlessly with the other 11 Liebherr locations across Canada and the rest of the world.
Liebherr remains focused on supporting customers locally in Canada with providing high quality, market leading, and consumer focused products. Most importantly, the ongoing Liebherr investment supports its established relations as a solid business partner to Canadian customers in a market which Liebherr-Canada Ltd. has successfully represented for more than forty years.
Recently Mr. Tim Petersen was further appointed as Managing Director within the Managing Board of Directors of Liebherr-Canada Ltd.. Mr. Petersen joins Mr. Paul Robson on the Managing Board of Directors and will draw upon his many years of dedication and experience to help steer the business operations. Together they will lead the expanding business and work in conjunction with the motivated and dedicated team of more than 330 employees to support customers locally in Canada with their quality Liebherr products. Liebherr looks forward to a continued long-term successful business in Canada.
