The handover of the R 960 SME crawler excavator to our long-standing client Chavaz Père et Fils marks Liebherr’s 60 years in France. At the avenue Joseph Rey in Colmar since 1961, this site is synonymous with local and national expertise in the development and production of the Liebherr Group’s earthmoving crawler excavators for the whole world.
The 60th anniversary of Liebherr in France is highlighted by the special design of this R 960 SME crawler excavator. With a “vintage” look, the Chavaz Père et Fils crawler excavator sports 1960s. Against a grey background, the retro-modern fusion depicts the philosophy of the Liebherr brand, a company that is innovative while also proud of its origins and roots.
Emphatically “Made in France”, this very special 60 tonne machine’s components are painted in the colours of the country where it was manufactured. The excavator’s counterweight, undercarriage and uppercarriage have a blue, white and red trim, as an indispensable and yet subtle celebration of 60 years of French quality.
