One of the first manufacturers to make the switch to natural refrigerants in commercial refrigeration and freezing equipment, Liebherr, has joined as a Silver Partner. Liebherr supplies propane (R290) and isobutane (R600a) appliances to leading brands including Heineken, Pepsi, Bitburger, Nestle, Coca-Cola and a major energy drink producer.

Liebherr designs customised refrigeration and freezer appliances for 125+ leading brands. Due to the high demand for environmentally friendly refrigerants, Liebherr was one of the first manufacturers to switch to hydrocarbons for its entire range of professional fridges and freezers.

The ActiveGreen label represents the company's commitment to sustainability in all stages of production. Starting from the design phase, in combination with precision controllers and highly efficient refrigeration components, Liebherr is able to offer refrigeration units with best-in-class energy efficiency, even under the tough demands posed by professional use. All of Liebherr’s European manufacturing sites are certified to the international environmental management standard ISO 14001.

Domestic Appliances division

Since 1954, the Domestic Appliances product division manufactures refrigerators and freezers in Germany, Austria, Bulgaria and Malaysia for private and commercial use. Every day more than 7,000 appliances leave Liebherr’s various production plants.

First HFC-Free commercial appliances for food and medical industries

Liebherr was the first manufacturer to have changed over to environmentally friendly refrigerants propane (R290) and isobutene (R600a) for its entire range of refrigerators and freezers for commercial use. Due to the changeover to hydrocarbons, an even greater energy efficiency can be obtained.

The range of professional appliances encompass 2 main categories:

  • Food and Beverage storage: bakery, merchandising, drink chillers, chest freezers, glass door freezers, universal and wine storage appliances.
  • Medicine and factory-designed laboratory appliances: in different temperature ranges for numerous applications including laboratory, spark free, -45°C and pharmacy.

About Liebherr

The Liebherr Group, one of world's largest manufacturers of construction machinery, is arranged, decentralised and divided into eleven product divisions which operate autonomously. The divisions of the Liebherr Group and its wide product range is a result of a vast information exchange between product divisions, which promotes innovative ideas and cross-industry developments. 39,500 people are employed at Liebherr, yet the Group is still managed by the Liebherr family, who make up the Shareholders' committee: the highest management organ of the company.

The eleven divisions in which Liebherr is active are:

  • Earthmoving Equipment
  • Mining
  • Mobile Cranes
  • Tower Cranes
  • Concrete Technology
  • Martime Cranes
  • Machine Tools and Automation Systems
  • Aerospace and Transportation Systems
  • Components
  • Domestic Appliances
  • Hotels

In 1949 the company’s German-born founder, Hans Liebherr, invented the tower crane which laid the foundations of the company's international success. The holding company is Liebherr-International AG.
