Liebherr Group says its new office recently opened in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina would expand its marketing activities primarily in the product areas of mining, mobile cranes and port and harbour cranes in Argentina and Uruguay.
The development was contained in a release made available to PortNews by Philipp Helberg.
According to the release, the office, which is situated in the heart of Buenos Aires, marks another chapter in the history of Liebherr- Argentina S.A and offers space for current and future growth, primarily in the product areas port and harbour cranes and mobile cranes.
Eleven of the 17 Liebherr employees working in Buenos Aires look after sales and service in the area of port and harbour cranes, and four other employees are responsible for the mobile cranes area.
The new office Liebherr would strengthen its presence in Argentina and also takes over the entire sales and service activities of Liebherr mobile cranes in Uruguay.
Speaking during the opening ceremony according to the release, Daniel Haag, Managing Director of Liebherr-Argentina S.A., has this to say “My greatest wish is that this new office becomes too small very quickly.
“We are optimistic about the future and are expecting further growth in Argentina and the neighbouring countries we look after from here.”
Liebherr-Argentina S.A. was founded in 2004 and currently employs a total of 58
employees at two locations. At the main site in San Juan close to the Veladero mine, Liebherr-Argentina S.A. repairs and maintains mining equipment of Liebherr throughout Argentina. In 2006 a separate workshop was added for the repair and conditioning of mining excavators.
