More than 39,000 co-workers help to facilitate technological advancement in many branches. The Group is managed to this day by the Liebherr family.
In the 1970s Liebherr founded its first companies on the American continent in line with its continued international orientation. In order to provide customers in the USA with even better support, Liebherr-America, Inc. was founded at the Newport News, Virginia, location in 1970.
The company firstly began with the local production of hydraulic excavators. The operational activities were later located to other Liebherr companies in the USA, whilst Liebherr-America, Inc. predominately provides services today. Currently, the Group operates twelve companies in the United States, including a production company for mining trucks that is also established at the Newport News location.
