Liebherr plans to invest $45 million in the expansion of its Newport News, Virginia, facility. The new expansion will include the construction of three new buildings on 28 acres adjacent to the Liebherr’s current manufacturing facility. Once completed, the new facilities will total more than 251,000 ft².
Liebherr builds haul trucks at this location and it distributes and services its other mining and construction equipment from this facility as well.
“Since 1970, our continued success and commitment to customers in the United States has always been at the forefront of everything we have done and continue to do,” said Torben Reher, managing director of Liebherr USA, Co. “This expansion underlines our commitment and further strengthens our position in North America to deliver sustainable long-term growth and to offer exceptional and consistent experience to customers across the United States.”
The expansion will offer space for Liebherr USA Co.’s new headquarters and administrative building, a production and workshop facility, and a warehouse and distribution building. Construction is expected to begin in July and be completed by summer 2020.
