Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. has an excellent worldwide reputation for reliable, high-performance port equipment and container cranes in all sizes – from straddle carriers right up to the latest generation of ship to shore container cranes in the Megamax class.

The product range includes:

  • Ship to shore container cranes
  • Rubber-tyred container stacker cranes
  • Rail-mounted stacker cranes
  • Straddle carriers

Every crane is preassembled and checked by experienced Liebherr employees in the plant. This ensures time for assembly and commissioning at the installation site is kept to a minimum. Afterwards, the cranes are loaded onto charter ships in as large as possible assemblies. From the Port of Fenit over 40 kilometers away, the cranes are then transported for operation in ports throughout the world.

Local commitment

When it was founded in 1958, Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. was a pioneer in two senses of the word: The company was the first foreign Liebherr production company, and it was also one of the first industrial enterprises established by a European company in Ireland. Today, the company is an essential element of the local community in Killarney. Liebherr has thus been committing itself for years to local cultural, sport, and charitable projects, as well as events.
