Rostock plant increasing in importance for Liebherr Maritime cranes

Published by

Commencing January 2016, Liebherr Maritime cranes’ design, sales and customer service for mobile harbour cranes, reachstackers, ship cranes as well as offshore cranes will operate out of the company’s maritime production site in Rostock, Germany.

The factory in Rostock has been continuously growing since 2002 and employs more than 1400 people today. In line with personnel increase, Rostock has taken the lead in production for all maritime cranes, excluding container cranes, which are manufactured in Ireland. The plant has direct sea access, enabling cranes to be shipped in parts or even fully assembled and are able to drive on barges for transport and immediate operation after arrival.

According to the company, due to steady investments, the factory at the Baltic Sea provides space for further growth in all areas. This is especially important for the development and manufacturing of new products, such as the LHM 800, the world’s largest mobile harbour crane.

This transition to Rostock plant is part of the company’s strategic realignment that intends to increase performance, focus on growth and improve operational efficiency across.

Lieberr believes the new structure, which combines its maritime sales and technical resources to one location, will speed decision-making and increase productivity, while providing a simplified customer experience.
