In order to further strengthen the international market position of the group of companies in the maritime sector, Liebherr began in 2002 to establish a production location for the manufacture of maritime cranes in the port of Rostock. Production started up at the beginning of 2005 and steadily expanded in the following years. The programme comprises ship, mobile harbour and offshore cranes. The product portfolio also includes reach stackers and components for container cranes. Today, the Rostock production location stretches over a total area of 451,000 m² and employs a workforce of over 1,500.
