The heart of a new wastewater treatment facility in Newton County, Ga., consists of a liquid-holding structure made of precast concrete panels. The massive 1.25-million-gallons-per-day A. Scott Emmons Water Reclamation Facility, once completed, will serve growing business activity in the city of Social Circle as well as nearby residences.

Liebherr USA, Co. marked a milestone on April 6, 2020 – the company formally moved in to a newly expanded campus. The facilities house employees who work in administration, finance, human resources, sales, information technology, marketing, product support and distribution for nine different product units under the Liebherr USA, Co.

It took a while, but the project on the books for at least three decades is finally under way and moving smoothly. The $410 million 6/10 reconstruction is the largest construction contract put out in the history of the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT).

Urban settings can be tough environments in which to operate a crane. A recent project in downtown Chicago highlighted seemingly every conceivable hardship inherent to city work, yet each was overcome due to diligence, teamwork and careful planning. It began when managers of a 44-story office building in the city's central business district needed to add two new generators to the building to accommodate a new tenant.

Cranes Inc. , a New York City-based crane rental company, took delivery of the first in the United States Liebherr LTM 1110-5.1 mobile crane. The handover of the new five axle crane expands the company's substantial fleet. "I'm thrilled to be the first customer in the country to receive an LTM 1110-5.1," said Cranes Inc.

US Crane and Rigging LLC owner Thomas Auringer placed an order for seven Liebherr cranes at the Liebherr stand at the ConExpo. The order consists of two all-terrain cranes (LTM), two rough terrain cranes (LRT) and three tele crawlers (LTR). The cranes will be delivered throughout 2020.

SKV Crane & Rigging has added a Liebherr LR 1800-1.0 to its fleet of crawler cranes. The crane will soon be in the field on upcoming wind projects in Wyoming. "I feel the LR1800 was the best choice for the upcoming projects in our area," said Stephen Vinot, operations manager of SKV Crane and Rigging.

In one of Liebherr's first handovers at ConExpo 2020, Maxim Crane Works took delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane during the first day of North America's construction machinery trade show. Maxim Crane Works specializes in the rental and sale of lift equipment including hydraulic truck cranes, rough terrain cranes, crawler cranes, tower cranes, conventional truck cranes and boom trucks.

On April 1, 2020, Daniel Pitzer will change position and move to the Liebherr headquarters for mobile and crawler cranes in Ehingen, Germany, becoming CFO of the mobile and crawler crane division. His successor in charge of the USA market of the mobile and crawler cranes division is Pierre Bilgeri.

In the last year, Liebherr has launched seven crawler excavator models under 55 tons. Generation 8 machines have even greater power, higher productivity and more comfort for the operator. The new R 926 and R 938 models are being featured at ConExpo. Like all new generation 8 models, these Liebherr crawler excavators, launched in 2019, boast numerous improvements.

In 2013, the ALL Family of Companies purchased the Liebherr 1750-9.1, a 900-ton, 9-axle, 18-wheel AT crane designed to fill the gap between Liebherr's 600-ton and 1,500-ton ATs. At the time, the crane was only the second of its kind in North America. Today, ALL is proud to announce it's adding a second to its fleet, tabbed for service in the company's branches across the southern states.
