Liebherr's new Hamburg port facility
Liebherr-MCCtec Vertriebs- und Service GmbH is investing approximately EUR20 million (USD22 million) in a new subsidiary in Hamburg Port.

The new subsidiary is responsible for supporting mobile harbour, ship and offshore cranes as well as construction machinery from the product areas of crawler cranes, deep foundation machines and duty cycle crawler cranes.

The new Liebherr sales and service centre, comprising an area of 44,000 sqm in the Kuhwerder Harbour, takes advantage of easy access to motorways and railways, a public transport network and direct water access via three quays.

The location also serves as a hub for rental and buy-back machines. A further important function is the overhauling of components as well as the execution of complex repairs on machines that, in some cases, can be transported by sea directly to Hamburg.

"We are investing in a location which offers long-term potential for growth in several directions. Due to logistics requirements, the harbour in Hamburg is our central hub for rental and buy-back machines, as well as for all kinds of repairs for the European area," explains Jörg Schmidt, managing director of Liebherr-MCCtec Vertriebs- und Service GmbH.

Currently, the Hamburg facility has approximately 100 employees.
