The EU Commissioner and his entourage were greeted by Dr. h.c. Willi Liebherr, president of the governing board of Liebherr-International AG, along with the management team of Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH.

After a brief introduction to the activities of the Liebherr Group and Liebherr-Aerospace, Oettinger looked around the factory, which is currently undergoing the biggest expansion works in its company history. The new 250 meter long assembly hall for flight control and landing gear systems impressed the visitors with optimized processes and state-of-the-art workplaces. In the company's own testing and qualifying center, the guests gained an insight into the planning and implementation of tests as well as the qualification of equipment and systems and corresponding documentation.

During the walk around the company, the EU Commissioner remarked that Liebherr stands for the highest level of technical quality and precision. It was noted that long-term planning possibilities and sustainability are among the strengths of the company as well as the whole of the South German industry.
