Liebherr Maritime said it will establish full service, spares and sales activities in Australia, New Zealand and the Oceania region to create better support for maritime customers using factory trained and locally recruited engineers. Additionally, Liebherr representative Morrow Equipment Australia will focus on the purchase and rental of tower cranes in the future.
 
Liebherr has been present in Australia since the early ’70s, leasing its first premises in Kilkenny in 1983. Over the years Liebherr invested in the Australian subsidiary, and the maritime division entered the Sydney offices with their offshore, duty cycle, heavy-lift, and foundation equipment in 2015.
 
With 40 ship-to-shore cranes and straddle carriers from its Killarney sister company, 35 MHCs, and in excess of 10 offshore cranes in the Oceania region, it has now been decided to take the maritime business unit to the next level. Therefore, Liebherr will directly establish full service, spares and sales activities in the region with the aim of providing better support for customers using factory trained locally recruited engineers. It also means that new products can be introduced, such as our new Liebherr Reachstacker or new mobile harbor crane types and offshore cranes.
 
Morrow Australia has represented Liebherr’s mobile harbor cranes business in Australia for the last 27 years, using its connections to assist in sales from first the Nenzing factory in Austria, and now the maritime headquarters in Rostock, Germany. The main business of Morrow is the purchase and rental of tower cranes, and this will become their focus, while at the same time continuing their links to Liebherr through this business. After a relationship of so many years, Liebherr will offer them every support.
 
With the Morrow target now being tower cranes, on the service side Liebherr will recruit Kalman Kis, the Morrow MHC engineer assuring a seamless transition. He has started with the company on June 13.
 
With effect from September 1, Gordon Clark will cease his function as Sales Director for Offshore Cranes in Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH. Subsequently he will transfer to Liebherr-Australia Pty. Ltd. in Sydney to manage the development of the maritime sales division in the regions Australia, New Zealand and Oceania. Clark has already been internationally active for the Liebherr Group in various sales positions since 1991. Following his start with Liebherr-Great Britain Ltd, his career led him via Liebherr-Africa (PTY) Ltd. and Liebherr Middle East, FZE. in Dubai to the company’s factory in Rostock.
