November 19 - Liebherr Maritime Cranes expects 2014 to be a record year in terms of annual deliveries and turnover - surpassing 2008's delivery record when 102 units were shipped worldwide.

"Liebherr managed to achieve a significant rise in deliveries of mobile harbour cranes, despite the fact that the world economy grows only moderately. This year, we expect our market share to be in the range of 70 percent, underlining our market-leading position," said Matthias Mungenast, sales director for Liebherr mobile harbour cranes.

Liebherr entered the mobile harbour crane market in 1974 and after 20 years of moderate but constant business, Liebherr delivered its 100th unit during 1994. The same year marks a significant turnaround, with annual deliveries being double-digit for the first time. In 2012, Liebherr achieved a major milestone, delivering the 1000th mobile harbour crane to Montoir Bulk Terminal in France. Today, Liebherr has supplied more than 1200 units to nearly 100 countries all over the world.
