Liebherr Opens Its Third Mining Branch in Western Australia

Liebherr-Australia will open a new mining branch in Kalgoorlie, its third mining branch in Western Australia, to support its growing fleet of equipment and customer base in the Goldfields region. The branch is set to be located in the city on a 10,000m2 block, incorporating a 1,000m2 warehouse and 180m2 office space, with necessary parts and Liebherr tooling held in the facility. The branch will be supported by full-time parts personnel, with customer support and service teams using the branch as a hub when travelling between sites.

Kalgoorlie is located in the Goldfields-Esperance region in Western Australia. The city is centrally located, ideal to support Liebherr’s growing fleet of equipment in the region.

In recent years, Liebherr’s footprint of mining equipment has grown, now supporting more than 30 excavators and trucks, over 15 mine sites and nine customers, with more scheduled into 2022.

“Returning to Kalgoorlie marks the success we’ve had in recent years in growing our equipment fleet in the region,” comments Trent Wehr, Liebherr-Australia Managing Director, on the significance of this investment for the company. The new opening marks a return to the region for Liebherr-Australia who were present in the region through an agent between 1986 and 1990, before taking over the official OEM dealership in the region from 1990 to 2006. He adds, “We have always been committed to providing the best support to our customers and establishing the Kalgoorlie branch will only further enable us to provide these services.”

Liebherr-Australia’s mining customer support network includes branches in Mackay QLD, Mt Thorley NSW, Perth WA, Newman WA, soon-to-be Kalgoorlie WA, along with the head office, national distribution centre, and production facility in Adelaide SA.

The Kalgoorlie branch is scheduled to be operational in January 2022, with Liebherr-Australia to hold an official opening ceremony with key customers and partners in the first quarter of 2022 to celebrate the milestone.
