Liebherr-Australia has been featured in AdelaideNow for creating more than 100 jobs in the next five years through a planned $65 million expansion of Para Hills mining manufacturing firm Liebherr-Australia in areas such as warehousing, distribution, mechanical and electrical trades, administrative and clerical.
The company has lodged plans for a $65 million expansion of its Willi Liebherr Drive head office with Salisbury Council.
The development will include a three-storey office, workshops, a warehouse, a component plant and a distribution centre. Liebherr-Australia will also provide equipment and support services to the mining and construction industries.
Managing director, Greg Graham said the company was looking to expand following â€œConsiderable successâ€ in mining sales.
Â â€œWe believe we can source the people we need from within Adelaide and our experience with the people who already work within us at Para Hills has always been positive.â€
If approved, work is expected to start on the development at the end of the year and be finished in 18 months.
