The Swiss multinational equipment manufacturer Liebherr, has officially opened its new service center in Hamburg. The center, comprising an area of 44,000 square meters in the Kuhwerder.

“We are investing in a location which offers long-term potential for growth in several directions. Due to the logistic 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,” said Jörg Schmidt, Managing Director of Liebherr-MCCtec Vertriebs- und Service GmbH.

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

The new 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.

A workshop (2,160 m²), a store (1,080 m²), open storage (10,000 m²) and a four-storey office building (3,750 m²) have been erected on the new site. Most of the construction work was completed within one year.
