A family-owned company
Franz-Anselm Viegener founded this family-owned company in 1899, thereby laying the foundation stone for the success story behind today’s Viega. It all began with the production of beer taps that were sold to local breweries and taverns. But the company grew fast, and the number of products increased. The first additions were drain fittings and overflow fittings, and then, when the first branch works were opened, the range was further extended to include copper pipe connecting elements and plastic products for sanitary facilities. In the mid 1990s and in the year 2000, Viega revolutionised the market twice in quick succession: first with the introduction of the Profipress system, then with SC-Contur. And we have not stopped there.
A global market leader
Today Viega has advanced to become an internationally operating market leader with ten locations throughout the world, over 4,700 employees and a wide range of products covering the entire installation technology sector. Notwithstanding this impressive expansion, we have succeeded in maintaining the standards that have characterised the company from its earliest days – and that still constitute the decisive force that drives our success. Furthermore, the people who make Viega what it is, namely our employees, are central to us. Thanks to intensive programmes of advancement and training, we achieve two goals at the same time: Not only do we make Viega successful as a company, but each individual person as well. For we don’t merely think from one quarter to the next, but from generation to generation.
For a company that sees itself as being ‘Connected in Quality’, the way forward is clear: uncompromising standards in development and production. So for Viega there is simply no question about it – highest standards of quality in this area as well. We achieve this thanks to our highly qualified staff who provide for absolute precision and reliable products in modern research and development laboratories and production facilities.
Made in Germany
Our clear commitment to ‘production in Germany’ plays a significant role regarding the high quality of our products. For here we can maintain and monitor the highest possible standards. And in all the other production facilities outside Germany products are manufactured locally that meet German standards. That is what enables us to adhere to these high standards of reliability and constant high quality ‘made in Germany’.
