Liebherr was founded in 1949 by Hans Liebherr. The company’s successful growth and stable structure are thanks to his ideas and great personal commitment. In the 60-plus years since the company was founded, Liebherr has demonstrated stability and reliability, thanks to the personal commitment of the company owners and the credo of the family enterprise.
As an independent family-run business, Liebherr enjoys strong discretionary powers in all of its activities. The shareholders of the Group are second- and third-generation descendants of the company founder and play an active role in the company themselves. They run the organisation with the same tradition, and thereby ensure continuity and security.
