Neeb & Schuch receive Liebherr mobile crane

August 24 - The German based joint venture crane rental and transport company Neeb & Schuch has taken delivery of a new 500 tonne Liebherr LTM1500-8.1 mobile crane.

Wuppertal-based Neeb and Speyer-based Schuch both offer crane rental and heavy transport services on an international basis.

The two family-owned companies have co-operated for some time and established a joint branch in Qatar over a year ago. Earlier this year it was decided to formalise this with the foundation of a jointly held business - Neeb-Schuch GmbH, which focuses on special and larger equipment for international operations.

"The LTM 1500-8.1 is a top performer and has really proved its worth over and over again. The 500-tonner from Liebherr can be put to work in a vast range of situations, and that means it fits in precisely with the orientation of our new company", says Armin Neeb, managing director of Neeb-Schuch GmbH. 

Neeb-Schuch already has a number of Liebherr cranes in its fleet including mobile cranes a lift capacity of 300 to 500 tonnes, a 100 tonne telescopic crawler crane, plus a Liebherr LR 1600/2 crawler unit. The new LTM 1500-8.1 is intended for operations in Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia.

Both founder companies continue to operate as independent concerns, and still run their individual branches in Germany, Spain, France, Luxemburg, Romania, Tunisia, Congo, Algeria, Serbia, and Abu Dhabi.
