Liebherr Buys Concrete Pump Manufacturer

Posted on October 24, 2012

The Liebherr Group said it has acquired concrete pump manufacturer Waitzinger, Neu-Ulm, Germany. Waitzinger Baumaschinen GmbH employs about 60 people and specializes in truck-mounted concrete pumps, trailer concrete pumps and truck mixer concrete pumps.

"This is the perfect complement to Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH's product range. To date the company based in Bad Schussenried has developed and produced mobile and stationary mixing plants, as well as truck mixers and conveyor belts for truck mixers. \

"The acquisition of Waitzinger has afforded Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH the status of full-range supplier in the concrete technology sector. Liebherr's goal is to expand the concrete pump product range and thus further improve its international competitive position in the concrete technology sector," Liebherr said in announcing the acquisition.
