Liebherr buys concrete pump manufacturer

24 Oct 12 The Liebherr Group has acquired concrete pump manufacturer Waitzinger, which is based in Neu-Ulm, Germany.

Waitzinger Baumaschinen was founded in 1991, and today employs a staff of nearly 60. It specialises in the development and production of truck-mounted concrete pumps, trailer concrete pumps and truck mixer concrete pumps. These products will now also be distributed via Liebherr's international sales and service organisation.

The pumps will join the the Liebherr-Mischtechnik range. Liebherr-Mischtechnik  employs a workforce of almost 700 at its Bad Schussenried site.

To date, Liebherr-Mischtechnik has developed and produced mobile and stationary mixing plants, as well as truck mixers and conveyor belts for truck mixers. The acquisition of Waitzinger means that Liebherr-Mischtechnik is now a full-range supplier in the sector. Liebherr's goal is to expand the concrete pump product range and thus further improve its international competitive position in concrete technology.
