General manager Juan Olascoaga said: “We feel confident as we rely on the trustworthiness of Liebherr and all its staff, for they are strategic partners in the development of our business. Our mobile harbour cranes are doubtlessly our main fixed asset, and they determine the service level that we provide to our customers. This is why Liebherr’s reliability and aftersales support are essential values to us.”

Liebherr sales director of mobile harbour cranes Andreas Müller added: “We are thankful for the trust Montecon is showing with this new order of the third LHM 800. We will continue to put all efforts into fulfilling the expectation Montecon has towards Liebherr.”
