Manufacturer celebrates year end with record crane delivery



Manufacturer Liebherr is celebrating after its plant in Ehingen, Germany delivered a record 2,000 cranes this calendar year. The milestone was reached earlier in December when an LTM 1070-4.2 was handed over to MAXIKraft.

The machine was presented to Maik Kanitzky, owner of the MAXIKraft Group, in front of thousands of employees at a Liebherr company meeting.

“Considering that the average crane size has increased in recent years, with the majority of cranes now having more than four axles, this new record is even more remarkable,” the company said.

MAXIKraft has placed a number of large orders with Liebherr in recent years. The MAXIKraft Group, with around 500 employees, operates about 200 cranes, 80 percent of which come from Liebherr – from the LTM 1030-2.1 to the LR 11000.

Since the founding of the company in 1992, around 800 new Liebherr cranes have been purchased, at a cost of nearly 500 million euros.
