In line with its international growth, Liebherr’s venture into the United States began in 1970. Within a couple of years, the company expanded and completed its production facilities in Newport News, VA for its product line of hydraulic excavators. It was later converted into Liebherr’s manufacturing facility for mining trucks and remains home to Liebherr Mining Equipment Newport News, Co.
In addition to its production facility, Liebherr markets a wide variety of products and technologies through its companies located across the United States. The companies are Liebherr- Aerospace Saline, Inc., Liebherr Gear Technology, Inc., Liebherr Automation Systems, Co., and Liebherr USA, Co., the umbrella company for eight divisions that are positioned across the United States.
Liebherr produces a wide variety of products and services from purpose-built machines and technologies for the earthmoving and mining sectors to freezing and refrigeration equipment for domestic and commercial use. Additionally, the Group’s product range covers aerospace and transportation systems, machine tools, automation systems and high performance components for mechanical, hydraulic and electrical drive and control technology.
