Under the motto "Committed to Your Success", Liebherr New Zealand relocated its operations to the new Sales and Service Centre at East Tamaki near Auckland in May 2015. The official opening ceremony was celebrated on Friday the 31st of July 2015 and was attended by numerous customers and other guests. Liebherr uses this location to serve customers and potential clients locally.
The brand new facility has just been purpose built and enables Liebherr to provide their customers with excellent service. The premises include a spacious workshop with internal gantry crane, a wash bay and a large spare parts warehouse. The branch covers 1,000m² of office and workshop space and has a yard of 1,600m².
The ceremony was attended by over 70 customers, guests and Liebherr staff. Several machines were exhibited, including Liebherr’s unique fuel-efficient wheel loaders and Liebherr’s market leading mobile cranes. The festivity was held under a German beer garden theme including a colourful buffet with local delicacies and a raffle.
