Liebherr looks back on a successful 2018
The Liebherr Group notched up a turnover of EUR 10.5 billion in 2018, breaking through the EUR 10 billion barrier for the first time in the company’s history. This represents an increase of EUR 739 million, or 7.5%, compared to the previous year. Among other projects, Liebherr is starting to install a powerful land-based heavy-duty crane in the port of Rostock (Germany).
The TCC 78000 portal crane will not only be used to load Liebherr cranes, which are continuing to increase in size, but will also be available for external heavy load handling in the port of Rostock.
Outside Europe, Liebherr is investing in projects such as the development of the Newport News site (USA). The expansion of the crane, construction machinery and concrete technology divisions is intended to support the group’s long-term growth strategy in the US market. (kd)
