Liebherr confirms UK headquarters expansion

LIEBHERR Great Britain is to expand its UK headquarters after snapping up a new 15-acre site adjoining the company’s existing 9-acre base in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire.

Development plans are still being finalised but Liebherr said it is expected to include a new pre-delivery inspection centre, amongst other functions.

Lee Palmer, managing director of Liebherr Great Britain said, “This expansion will ensure we continue to have adequate resources and capacity to support our customers and the continued growth of Liebherr in the UK. Vitally, it will also enable us to create even more skilled employment opportunities for the local community and across the country.”

The news follows the recent announcement that Liebherr will be investing €28.4 million in expanding the factory in Germany that manufactures its material handling machines.
