Established in 1949 by Hans Liebherr, the Liebherr Group is a large German equipment manufacturer based in Switzerland, specializing in cranes, aircraft parts, and mining. It has a workforce of over 35,000 and comprises more than 130 companies across all countries. By 2007, it was the world's largest crane company.

Starting by building affordable tower cranes, Liebherr expanded into making aircraft parts, commercial chiller displays and freezers, as well as domestic refrigerators. The group also produces some of the world's biggest mining and digging machinery, including loaders, excavators and extreme-size dump trucks. The "T 282 B" is the world's biggest truck. The group's nine-axle mobile crane, the LTM 11200-9.1 - with a 100 metres (328 ft) telescopic boom - received the heavy-lifting industry's Development of the Year award, by dint of being world's most powerful such machine in 2007.

In the U.S., the group started spending $ 45.4 million on a three-year renovation and expansion of its Newport News, Virginia factory, offices and warehouse in 2012. The company sought to increase its production there beyond 100 mining trucks a year. On 19 February 2013, representatives from the Commonwealth of Virginia and the cities of Newport News and Hampton announced that they would make grants and incentives available for transport improvement, training, and property investment.
