Meister takes delivery of new Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane

2018.04.26 - admin

Ehingen / Donau (Germany) April 2018 – The demands on the boom systems for installing glass facades are changing. Meister GmbH based in Dieburg is increasingly receiving orders which require the boom to have a higher lifting capacity ...

... and an extended length. That was reason enough for the crane specialist to add to its mobile crane fleet so as to react to market demand. As a result of its frequent jobs on high-rise buildings in constricted areas, Meister GmbH decided to buy a new Liebherr LTM 1060-3.1 mobile crane. Claudia Meister, the owner and Managing Director, and Jens Ochmann, Technical & Organisation Manager, took delivery of the new 60-tonne crane at the Liebherr Plant in Ehingen. 

  • VarioBase® variable support base the deciding factor behind the purchase
  • The LTM 1060-3.1 features a long boom system 
  • Meister GmbH specialises in glass installation work

Meister GmbH is a crane specialist based just outside Frankfurt which specialises in the installation of glass facades. The company uses mobile cranes, loading cranes and special equipment for hoisting glass for this purpose. Now the market is demanding greater hoist heights and lifting capacities. Meister is therefore adding a Liebherr 60-tonne machine to its mobile crane fleet to replace a 40-tonne crane. The LTM 1060-3.1 was ordered with a double folding jib which extends the 48-metre telescopic boom by 16 metres. The long boom system is perfect for use on the large number of high-rise buildings in the Frankfurt area. 

Claudia Meister explains: "The LTM 1060-3.1 is a compact, manoeuvrable crane. That is very important for urban use. That is why the family committee decided on a Liebherr crane". Jens Ochmann continues: "We have very little space. We are not allowed to close roads. We generally have to operate with a reduced support base. Last summer I came to Liebherr to test the LTM 1060-3.1 with VarioBase®. It is perfect for the work we carry out and for our company structure. The fact that it has the latest engine and drive technology was another major reason behind our decision."

Claudia Meister is the second generation to head the family-run company and explains its business philosophy: "Our strategy is to concentrate on our core business – mobile and loading cranes for glass facade installation. We also have glass vacuum lifters and universal manipulators with up to 6 axes to help with the work. We also have special lifting equipment such as counterweight traverses." 

Meister GmbH operates throughout Europe because its customers want to use the installation specialists from Dieburg even for orders in other countries. Quality pays dividends. The company is now over 40 years old. It originally started out as a towing service and car dismantlers. The company bought its first cranes in 1993 – Liebherr LT 1045, LT 2025 and LT 1028 hydraulic truck cranes. 

"We started with Liebherr cranes and now we are continuing with Liebherr cranes. The new LTM 1060-3.1 is the first crane whose purchase I have organised as Managing Director. We want to have more than one string to our bow", says Claudia Meister. Currently the company runs nine mobile cranes with lifting capacities of up to 200 tonnes and eight loading cranes up to 200 metre-tonnes with its 40-strong workforce.
