2024 marks the 75th anniversary of the Liebherr Group, with celebrations taking place in locations all over the world.

Liebherr also celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Zambia company earlier this month.

The company was founded in June 2014 to provide support for mining activities in the Zambian Copperbelt.

Liebherr Zambia administration managing director Henri Wassink says the company has expanded over 10 years.

“When we first opened, we had a handful of employees: one accountant, one parts representative, and a single technician,” he said.

“Today, Liebherr Zambia is more than 100 employees strong, and we are present on different customer sites.”

Despite being home to 20% of the world’s emeralds and being the seventh largest copper producer in the world, the Zambian mining industry is small and therefore extremely competitive.
