Liebherr’s commitment to the United States market began in 1970 with the construction of two manufacturing facilities and its North American headquarters located in Newport News, Virginia. Over the years, the company successfully opened multiple sales and service corporate offices throughout the country.
"We are proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our Miami branch, representing our umbrella company and the diverse product units based in this location," said Dr. Tim Gerhardt, Managing Director of Liebherr USA, Co. "Our focus has been on delivering groundbreaking products, unmatched service, and industry-leading solutions for our customers. This achievement stands as a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Miami-based team over the past 10 years."
Liebherr‘s 56,000-square-foot Miami facility is the main hub for sales and service for the company’s maritime cranes and tower cranes product segments, as well as refrigerators and freezers for residential and commercial applications. This location has continually played a role in Liebherr’s growth strategy in the U.S. and solidifies the company’s position as a prominent player in the industry.
Offerings for the maritime crane segment include port equipment with mobile harbor cranes, container cranes, fixed port solutions as well as offshore, ship, and floating cranes. This center not only offers diverse maritime products but serves as a worldwide training hub for maritime customers, operators, and service.
In addition to the maritime crane portfolio, Liebherr is one of the world’s largest suppliers of tower cranes. This Miami segment offers fast-erecting and top-slewing cranes, digital solutions, and consulting services to provide smart data analysis and maximize efficiency for customers and their application needs.
Liebherr’s refrigeration and freezing segment offers customers a full product line of high-end refrigeration solutions for residential use, and commercial refrigeration and freezing units to support major industries such as food service and health care.
This facility also provides essential on-site customer support, advisory services, and fulfillment of spare parts, as the location allows Liebherr to respond to customer inquiries quickly and accelerate the distribution of parts and services across the region.
The continued success of the company lies in the teamwork, dedication, and enthusiasm of Liebherr's approximately 51,000 employees worldwide. Liebherr employees have an opportunity to individually contribute through the work they do each day in the Americas and the globe.
