Investments, interest in Liebherr products result in positive conclusion after Bauma 2013
Liebherr reported success in sales and interest in its earthmoving technology, tower cranes, mobile cranes, concrete technology and and deep foundation products investments and interest at Bauma 2013 last week.
Joachim Strobel, managing director sales at Liebherr-EMtec GmbH and Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH in Kirchdorf, Germany, said though the company was unsure how much interest investors would have in Liebherr’s earthmoving technology at the show, sales were successful, with particularly high demand from Germany, Russia, France, the Netherlands or Switzerland, North America and Africa.
Dominique Tasch, managing director of Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH in Biberach, Germany, said tower crane sales were higher than expected. The company sold about 100 tower cranes in the first few days of the show, with highest demand from Western Europe, India, South and North America and Australia.
Christoph Kleiner, managing director of Liebherr-Werk Ehingen GmbH in Ehingen, Germany, said mobile crane sales made the best start the company has seen. The company sold 55 cranes by Wednesday, with the majority of interest coming from North America, Great Britain and Russia.
Mark Figel, managing director of Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH in Bad Schussenried, Germany, said concrete technology sales also exceeded expectations. The majority of buyers were interested in the company’s MobilMix 2.5 concrete mixing plant.
Gerhard Frainer, managing director of Liebherr-Werk Nenzing GmbH in Nenzing, Austria, said the most interest was in Liebherr’s rotary drilling rig LB 44 and its hybrid duty cycle crawler crane HS 8300 HD.
