Schuch ready for ‘rail, road and renewables’ with all new Liebherr fleet



German crane and heavy haulage contractor Schuch has ordered 15 new mobile cranes from Liebherr with lifting capacities between 90 and 750 tonnes.

Schuch, which has several outlets in the Rhine-Main and Rhine-Neckar regions, has already taken delivery of the first of these cranes, with the delivery of the last being scheduled for the end of 2023.

Managing director Stefan Schuch explained: “Expanding the infrastructure for rail, road and renewables requires more mobile cranes. That is what made up our minds to expand our fleet.”

Son Tim, also a managing director of the family-run company, added: “It is important to keep our crane fleet up with the very latest crane technology to ensure that we can provide our customers with the best possible service. That is another reason for investing in new mobile cranes.”

The new cranes were selected, in part, because the control systems are uniform on all Liebherr mobile cranes, from small to large, benefitting the crane rental contractor,

Schuch has ten sites between Saarbrücken in the west, Frankfurt in the north and Karlsruhe in the south. The company has a 120-strong workforce and specialises in crane work with around 80 mobile cranes.
