Congratulations on adopting press technology.

Maybe you’re new to the field and are familiar with the tools and fittings through training programs or perhaps your employer introduced you to pressing. Maybe you’re an experienced contractor and you’re adopting pressing because you’ve seen how it’s faster, cleaner, safer and more efficient than traditional methods, like soldering.

If you run your own shop, you’ve got your choice of tools and fittings. There are a lot of excellent tools and jaws to choose from (Viega, RIDGID, Milwaukee, Hilti etc.) and virtually all of them are designed to be compatible with Viega fittings.

There are a lot of different press fittings to choose from as well. So why pick Viega? Here’s why:


Pressing was adopted earlier in Europe than in North America. After establishing itself as an industry leader overseas, Viega brought press systems to North America more than 20 years ago. We created the market here and continue to lead while others follow. No one has more experience in pressing.


Viega makes fittings for copper, PEX, stainless steel, carbon steel and copper nickel. Our fittings are approved for more than 800 applications, including potable water, fire sprinkler systems, hydronic heating and cooling, compressed air, natural gas, caustic chemicals, marine, steam, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, diesel fuel, engine oils and more.


Viega offers hundreds of different fitting configurations in sizes from ½" to 4": tees, elbows, reducers, unions, valves, caps, unions, flanges and more.

Smart Connect

Viega is the only fitting manufacturer to offer Smart Connect, a system that helps installers quickly and easily identify fittings that need pressing. This saves time on testing and repairs.


Viega stands behind its technology with outstanding customer support and residential and commercial design services that let contractors proceed with confidence.


Viega operates seminar centers in Colorado and New Hampshire that offer a comprehensive range of training courses, from one day to week-long programs.

Made in the USA

Viega LLC is headquartered in Colorado and has manufacturing facilities in Kansas. All of its PureFlow PEX is made in this country, as are some of the more commonly used ProPress and MegaPress fittings.
