125 Years of Innovating Excellence

When Franz-Anselm Viegener began producing beer taps in 1899, no one could have predicted his small business out of Attendorn, Germany, would become a global leader in press technology. In these early days, core values of innovation, persistence and close collaboration were formed and solidified as an integral part of Viega.

After nearly a century of revolutionizing the HVAC and plumbing industries across Europe, Viega broke into the North American market in 1999. Since then we’ve been changing the game, but no matter how far we’ve come, we always remember where we began.

Check out our 125-year video highlighting our journey from humble beginnings to global leaders.

Pioneering the Trades

Throughout our history, we’ve fostered an unwavering commitment to quality and expertise. That means engineering and manufacturing superior products and offering resources and support to help ambitious industry leaders perform at the top of their game. Our extensive offerings include high-quality press fittings, radiant heating and cooling solutions, a newly expanded valve portfolio, and much more.

The heart of our mission is further reflected in our presence at tradeshows and our efforts to welcome and equip the next generation of professionals. Our training centers across the U.S. allow professionals to get hands-on experience working with Viega products and exclusive education opportunities from experts.

"Prost" to 125 Years

To ring in our 125th anniversary on a high note, we’re hosting several collaborations and giveaways to showcase our unending gratitude and excitement for the future. We’re kicking things off with a big cheer, partnering with 4 Noses Brewing Company in Broomfield, CO, to draft a signature beer called Pressed American Lager. You can get your hands on some at local Colorado customer events and trainings. Book a training in Broomfield or reach out to your local Viega representative to request to join a trip.


The first of several mini fridge giveaways we’re running throughout the year has already been chosen. A big and congrats to the winners!

As a nod to our roots, we also gave away Viega bottle openers to 125 lucky winners.

Looking Ahead

Our celebrations aren’t only about remembering the past, but also looking towards the future. From continuously launching innovations like our expanded valves portfolio to making technological advances that help professionals navigate an everchanging market, we aren't slowing down anytime soon. Our efforts to build new manufacturing facilities around the U.S. reflect our commitment to not only product excellence but also to employing hardworking professionals in our own backyard and to sustainability.

A Big Thanks

As we celebrate 125 years of excellence, we know it’s you who made this all possible. We know that it’s the people who make an organization stand the test of time, and we want to thank you for your continued support and commitment to building the lifelines of tomorrow with us.
