LiuGong expands European operations

LiuGong has announced the opening of its new European regional headquarters in Warsaw, Poland. The new facilities are intended to support the growth of the construction equipment manufacturer’s business on the continent by being centrally located to increase collaboration with key staff and customers.

Howard Dale, chairman of LiuGong Europe and LiuGong Dressta Machinery, said “There is significant opportunity for growth in Europe. We are committed to continuously improving its products and services and growing our business in this region, so we have established the new headquarters to support these aspirations.”

In addition to the regional headquarters opening, LiuGong also announced increased manufacturing capabilities in Stalowa Wola, Poland. The new production will augment Dressta’s Dozer & Pipe-layer operations and manufacture LiuGong wheel loaders and excavators for supply throughout Europe.

To celebrate both the opening of the regional headquarters and the new production operations, LiuGong Dressta Machinery held a two-day event where customers, dealers, senior management and local dignitaries learned more about the new facilities and capabilities.

“This serves as a very clear signal that Liu Gong is committed to this market and in a strong position to offer our customers shorter lead-times and improved support with products that are designed for, and made in Europe,” said Dale.
