Event for Customers, Partners, Families
The event launch allowed Liebherr customers to join in facility tours and experience product presentations, including a live application show of various new machines. More than 30 exhibits throughout the facility grounds were on display, and product experts were on hand to explain special features of the new machines and give insights on using established machines.
