Liebherr Mining expands Perth facility

Liebherr-Australia has expanded its Perth mining facility, adding 47,000m2 of workshop, office, and build space to the complex. This increased footprint will facilitate the company’s progress with their mining decarbonisation and technology projects. Perth is Liebherr-Australia’s second largest branch after the company’s Head Office Complex in Adelaide.

Liebherr-Australia’s growing involvement in the development and implementation of zero emission technology with Australian customers illustrates the necessity for this investment in infrastructure, and signifies Liebherr’s commitment to these industry-leading projects.

The Redcliffe-based branch purchased the land and buildings adjacent to the current location, increasing the Liebherr complex from 34,000m2 to 81,000m2. The new acquisition includes two workshops and a three-storey office building, adding to Liebherr’s existing 3,000m2 service workshop, 5,000m2 state-of-the-art parts warehouse, along with administration building and build area.

Liebherr-Australia Managing Director, Trent Wehr, commented on the importance of this facility expansion. “This is our largest investment in infrastructure here in Australia in many years, and this signifies how vital this facility is for our current and future business.

“Liebherr’s developments in zero emission technology, and the projects we are working on with industry partners and customers, are progressing every day and will deliver tangible solutions for the wider industry well before 2030,” Wehr said. “The team at Liebherr-Australia is making important contributions to the decarbonisation of the mining industry, and we’re committed to resourcing this momentous work for both our long term success and the benefit of the whole industry.”
