Liebherr takes up the reins with Claas telehandler cooperation

0

Following last week’s news that Kramer and Claas are to terminate their strategic agricultural telehandler alliance (see here) Liebherr-Werk Telfs GmbH has concluded an OEM partnership agreement with the Claas Group covering the development, production and delivery of substantial numbers of telescopic handlers.

The first models will be supplied from series production in early 2018. By that time, the range of Liebherr telescopic handlers will have grown and will continue to be marketed by the Liebherr sales organisation. Claas will procure a selection of telescopic handler models with a modified design from Liebherr.

The cooperation will enable Liebherr to generate additional future sales in the core target segment of construction engineering and industry with sales potential in the field of agriculture.
