Isolde Liebherr, vice president of the supervisory board of Liebherr-International AG, the parent company of the Liebherr Group, has been awarded an honorary doctorate of Laws (LLD honoris causa) by the National University of Ireland in Cork.

J Philip O'Kane, emeritus professor and former dean of the Faculty of Engineering, paid tribute to Isolde's outstanding achievements and successes.

After the death of Hans Liebherr in 1993, Isolde and her brother, Willi Liebherr, continued her father's legacy, and tripled the size of the globally operating family business.

O'Kane also stressed the close ties that Isolde has maintained with Ireland for many years, in particular, with the region of Killarney. The group has operated a production site and a number of hotels in Killarney for over 50 years.

He thanked Isolde for her support for Irish charitable organisations like the Kerry Parents and Friends Association which provides support for the disabled and their families.

The Liebherr Group has operated in Ireland since 1958 and currently employs over 700 people in three companies, in the fields of maritime cranes, construction machines and hotels.
