Direct sea access is a key advantage of our factory in Rostock. Our cranes may be
shipped in parts or even fully assembled. They can drive on barges for transport and
immediate operation after arrival. That means cost-effective delivery to our customers.
Space for Growth
Established in 2002, our factory in Rostock has been continuously growing and
employs more than 1.400 people today. In line with personnel increase, Rostock has
taken the lead in production for all maritime cranes, excluding container cranes which
are manufactured in Ireland. Due to steady investments, our factory at the Baltic Sea
provides space for further growth in all areas. This is especially important for the
development and manufacturing of new products like the LHM 800, the world’s largest
mobile harbour crane.
Our factories in Rostock, Killarney (Ireland), Nenzing (Austria) and Sunderland (United
Kingdom) are organized as a production network. This allows for more flexibility in
order to quickly adjust to varying market demands. Moreover, it ensures that our
products are as fast as possible ready for operation.
Ensuring we have the right organizational structure in place is a further step towards
increased customer-orientation. Liebherr Maritime Cranes will become more
streamlined, performance-driven and capable of rapidly responding to shifting industry
