On 18 August 2020 Liebherr has opened a new production site in Pinghu, eastern China. The newly founded Liebherr-Transportation Systems (China) Co., Ltd. develops, produces and services components and systems for rail transport in China and worldwide. The new company will thus strengthen the presence of Liebherr-Transportation Systems on the Chinese market, while at the same time further enhancing the reactivity and the extent of service performance for customers.
In 2019, Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS has decided to invest in an additional China-based production site in Pinghu, with the aim of generating additional value for the local-based railway industry as well as for the international railway market. With a production and engineering facility covering approximately 11,700 m², Liebherr-Transportation Systems (China) will intensify its existing activities in the country, focusing on air-conditioning and hydraulic actuation systems for all types of rail vehicles.
The Liebherr Group has been present in China for more than 40 years, in the railway transportation sector for almost 15 years. In 2006, the company started to supply technology to the Chinese railway industry by a dedicated Joint Venture with a Chinese partner. Since 2006, the Joint Venture Zhejiang Liebherr Zhongche Transportation Systems Co., Ltd. has successfully equipped around 5,000 railway cars with HVAC.
