The Liebherr Group: Over 41,500 employees. More than 130 companies. Over 50 countries around the world. And still, it is very likely that you have never heard of us. Find out more about our family-owned company from Germany. 

Founded in 1949, Liebherr’s mobile cranes were essential in rebuilding Germany. In 1954, refrigeration was added to the portfolio when, when Liebherr Appliances started operating from Ochsenhausen, Germany.

Liebherr’s international expansion began in Ireland. The location of the factory and infrastructure of 1950’s rural Ireland influenced Liebherr’s next, and maybe most surprising, expansion: The hospitality industry. Today, six world-class hotels welcome you in Germany, Austria and Ireland.

The Liebherr Group, an independent, family owned company, has operations in a diverse range of product worlds:

Liebherr markets a wide variety of products and technologies through its companies across the United States. Today, Liebherr USA, Co., is the umbrella company for eight divisions that are positioned across the United States.
