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.
Today Viega has advanced to become an internationally operating market leader with ten locations throughout the world, over 4,000 employees and a wide range of products covering the entire installation technology sector. Notwithstanding this impressive expansion, Viega have succeeded in maintaining the standards that have characterised the company from its earliest days – and that still constitute the decisive force that drives the company’s success. This is how they ensure quality ‘made in Germany’ and products of the highest grade, worldwide.
Viega is at home in all fields of building services: Drinking water and heating installations, pre-wall and drainage facilities, gas, solar and compressed-air installations for buildings, industrial plants and shipbuilding. Time and again, Viega has demonstrated a pioneering spirit coupled with innovative strength and competence to introduce bold new concepts. Alongside quality, Viega has won international recognition for exceptional design. Numerous design awards such as the "red dot" or "iF award" confirm the successful link between the function and design of Viega products.
