Eddy Angulo (HSE): "On Wednesday 14th November 2018, i were in the Global Business Program group who visited the Liebherr factory of Nizhni Novgorod. Honestly, this was one of the best company I have ever visited. First, I can say that the site of the factory is well organized with different production halls proper to different items of production. We have visited one of these production’s hall: the number 3. I were really impressionate and surprised by the size of the production place, and the machines which are used for the production. Indeed, the machines used in this production site requires particular skills and abilities from the engineers, and a high level of qualification. The talent and the competencies emanent from this production site are without doubts one of the key of the Liebherr’s success worldwide, it is also awarded by the different quality titles won by the group during the previous years."
Carlotta Pellegrini (UniBG): "On 14th November 2018, I had the chance to visit Liebherr’s branch, a German firm, held by a Swiss group, it has established a producing construction machinery subsidiary in Nizhny Novgorod since 2006. The enterprise seems successful and well organized: the good performances and the national tax incentives have permitted corporate growth. Liebherr's clients are its own-different-branches spread worldwide that ask for repaired elements or new products. The headquarter, additionally, sets up plans, communicates, directives and strategy policies that the office has to follow and/or include. Neitherless, the firm could adopt some other and additional rules, for instant subscribing environmental strategies and wastes' procedures, that are not compulsory in Russia. Liebherr seems an international and solid European organization. This corporate visit shows me the several and great possibilities for a European old company to develop a new foreign branch in an emerging market and implement an international strategy as well."
