Liebherr‘s soon-to-be-completed new U.S. headquarters reached a milestone with the installation of the final piece of structural steel.

The $45 million project, scheduled for completion in 2020, broke ground in Newport News, Virginia, July 2018. The 251,000-sq.-ft. expansion includes a new warehouse and workshop facility.

Favorable weather has allowed construction to proceed without setbacks, according to Liebherr.

“The new Liebherr USA, Co. warehouse in Newport News will allow all aspects of our logistics operation to be fully centralized and integrated into a modern state of the art facility,” says Oliver Frey, general manager of warehousing and logistics at Liebherr. “The new Liebherr USA facility will provide the latest safety features and an increase of 50 percent in storage capacity. In addition to the increased shelf space, the warehousing will also incorporate a dual shuttle vertical lifting machine to increase small component picking speed and storage capacity over our existing single shuttle unit.”

The headquarters will house Liebherr employees working in administration, finance, marketing, human resources, sales and service, product support, production and distribution for nine product units, according to the company.
