Neeb & Schuch gets 500 tonne Liebherr
By Alex Dahm30 August 2011
Germany-based international crane rental house Neeb & Schuch has added a new 500 tonne capacity Liebherr wheeled mobile crane to its fleet.
The new crane is intended for operations in Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Serbia.
The company is a 2011 joint venture between Wuppertal-based Neeb and Speyer-based Schuch. Both are more than 50 years old and have the second generation of the families in management positions. Both founder companies continue to operate as independent concerns, and still run their individual branches in Germany, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Romania, Tunisia, Congo, Algeria, Serbia, and Abu-Dhabi.
The new company focuses on special units and large items of equipment for international operations. A joint branch of the company was already established a year ago in Qatar. Neeb & Schuch plans to extend its fleet further to service growth markets in Asia and South America.
"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", said Armin Neeb, Neeb & Schuch managing director.
