Visit gave members further insight into Liebherr, its history, its wealth of products and the industries it serves.
Young British Metals Recyclers (YBMR) visited Liebherr GB Ltd. in Biggleswade on the 18 October. Employees from Recycled Products Ltd., Mellor Metals, Briggs Metals, HL Thorne and Co. and Metal & Waste, were hosted by Craig Cherry, who is Area Sales Manager for Liebherr.
Craig gave us further insight into Liebherr, its history, its wealth of products and the industries that it serves. Not only did the group learn more about the material handling equipment that Liebherr supplies, but that the still family-owned company can also supply fridges or that you can stay in a Liebherr hotel!
Following lunch, the group were taken into the yard to see some of the new models and get under the hood of the machinery. There was an opportunity to try the cabs out for size and ask questions about fuel economy and maintenance.
Sophia Briggs-Price of Briggs Metals who attended the tour said: “This was my first YBMR event. It was great to meet fellow metals recyclers in a similar position to me. The tour gave me a great insight into the Liebherr equipment and how it compares to what we use on the yard at the moment. I’m looking forward to seeing the types of training on offer and I hope to do more activities like this in the future”.
