The official machine handover took place at the headquarters of Mainka in Lingen (Lower Saxony). The building was moved into for the 125-year anniversary of the company last year. Rudolf Arnold, Sales Director of Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH, took the delivery of the 50th Liebherr machine and the 125-year anniversary as an opportunity to present a Liebherr beverage refrigerator in a customized design to Mainka: The illustration on the refrigerator shows the 50th Liebherr machine of the company, an A 916 Litronic wheeled excavator, in front of the new Mainka headquarters in Lingen.
The Liebherr A 916 Litronic wheeled excavator is a popular all-rounder, which impresses with excellent performance and stability. Whether in road construction, on a large construction site or for applications with confined spaces – with an operating weight of 17 tonnes, a powerful, fuel-saving four-cylinder motor with 115 kW / 156 hp, as well as the superior combination of uppercarriage and undercarriage, the machine is always reliable and powerful.
Mainka Bau GmbH & Co. KG successfully implements industrial construction projects in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. The projects include production buildings, power plants, warehouses, as well as laboratory and administration buildings. Mainka also offers infrastructure measures, from earthworks and pipeline construction to road construction through to the realisation of traffic areas. Mainka already uses 42 Liebherr machines with maintenance contracts for the efficient and smooth execution of these projects. "We have been working predominantly with Liebherr machines in the earthmoving area for many years now. We greatly appreciate the versatile, high-quality and powerful machines, as well as the reliable service and the competent advice of Liebherr-Baumaschinen Vertriebs- und Service GmbH in Dortmund-Lingen", says Werner Molde, Technical Director at Mainka. Now the company has ordered another package of Liebherr machines. This includes 17 earthmoving machines, including 12 Liebherr L 506 Compact loaders, four A 916 Litronic wheeled excavators and an R 914 Compact Litronic crawler excavator.
Apart from a high quality standard, Liebherr has been impressing with sustainable innovations and creative solutions for generations. This aspect is important to Mainka: "For over 125 years our company has stood for reliability in the construction sector. We have a particular responsibility not only to our customers and staff, but also to our environment", highlights Werner Molde. The 17 new Liebherr earthmoving machines correspond to the latest developments. Ingo Schubert, Sales Manager at Liebherr-Baumaschinen Vertriebs- und Service GmbH in Dortmund-Lingen, adds: "The earthmoving machines are equipped with the latest technologies for maximum efficiency with high productivity at the same time. The diesel engines in the machines are efficient and robust and impress with low fuel consumption. In addition, they comply with the current guidelines of exhaust emissions standard Stage V, with innovative exhaust gas aftertreatment systems for the effective reduction of pollutant emissions."
Mainka specialises in complex construction projects, for which high safety requirements must be fulfilled. Dr. Andreas Mainka, Managing Partner at Mainka, explains: "We also successfully implement construction projects under the toughest conditions because occupational safety lies at the heart of our corporate activity. We build safely - or not at all." The figures prove Mainka right. For years the company has been one of the pioneers in occupational safety and in 2019 won the German Occupational Safety Award for its commitment "Occupational safety as a corporate philosophy". The organisers of the award are the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS), the Commission for Occupational Safety and Safety Engineering of the Federal States (LASI) and the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).
Mainka has been placing its trust in the reliable Liebherr machines, which are designed for maximum safety, for day-to-day site work for around 25 years. For example, the Liebherr operator's cabs are equipped with large glass panes, which give the machine operator an optimal panoramic view. Lateral and rear-view cameras are also available as standard for the monitoring of the side and rear danger zone. Furthermore, Liebherr machines impress with maximum stability and safety against tilting because they provide stability, with comfortable and stable driving performance at the same time thanks to their robust design.
