Liebherr starts $65m expansion

Mining manufacturer Liebherr-Australia has begun work on a $65 million expansion of its Adelaide headquarters.

The development includes adding a new three-storey office, workshops, warehouse, component plant, and distribution centre to the Para Hills facility.

 

In announcing the start of new works Liebherr-Australia managing director Greg Graham toldAdelaide Now the expansion would help boost the local industry.

 

“The majority of our workforce comes from the Salisbury area so more jobs will mean their will be a flow on effects,” he said.

 

“There is already so much growth in the area.”

 

The development is part of a global expansion by the Switzerland-based manufacturer.

 

Earlier this year the company also announced expansions to facilities in the United States in order to increase production capacity.
