Liebherr USA has added 251,000 square feet to its existing corporate headquarters in Newport News, VA. The $60 million investment underlines to the continuous success in Liebherr’s 50 years of business operations in the United States, the company said.
“Apart from investing in research and design for cutting edge technology, we have a long-term focus with respect to our business and the relationships with our customers,” said Torben Reher, mangaging director, Liebherr USA Co. ”We want to grow together and our new site is the evidence for this approach; we are preparing for the future while investing in our customers’ success.”
The newly expanded corporate headquarters features a 60,000 ft² administrative building, a 82,000 ft² workshop and training facility, a 92,000 ft² parts distribution warehouse with retail operations, a guardhouse, and a one-story, 7,500 ft² wash bay building. The five new buildings cover a 30-acre site and increase Liebherr’s capability for expanded courses and in-house training, as well as for production, equipment preparation, product support and parts distribution for the nine different product divisions that fall under the Liebherr USA, Co.’s umbrella.
The administration building is a four-story office building that features sophisticated design elements, multiple technology laden training rooms with video conferencing capabilities and flexible workspaces for different types of working.
The workshop houses a two-story training center with classrooms for in-house dealers, dealer technicians and customers who gain hands-on experience with real equipment on the warehouse training floor.
A large maintenance shop allows Liebherr staff to service cranes of all sizes, concrete pump trucks, and earth moving equipment such as bull dozers, excavators and loaders.
