Connected in quality.
Quality is the driving force behind everything we do. It’s the heart of our company’s identity, and it has been that way for more than 115 years. Our devotion to quality has helped us achieve our vision of providing safer, faster, cleaner plumbing technology. Today, we have more than 4,000 employees worldwide. We are a global market leader, but because we are still family owned, we set our own standards.
Since our standard is true excellence, every day we strive for the highest quality. Every day we seek to be better than the day before. We listen to our customers. We innovate solutions. We lead the industry toward the future, but we will never forget where we came from and why we’re here.
We believe in our customers, and we support their daily work by coordinating materials, managing technology, and investing in research and development. That’s how we can offer truly innovative systems – more than 17,000 products – whenever our customers need them. Innovation isn’t meant to be secret, so we are committed to sharing what we’ve learned to help our industry thrive.
Quality is who we are.
A family-owned company
In 1899, Franz-Anselm Viegener founded Viega, laying the foundation for our success story. It all began with beer taps, Viega’s first product, sold to local breweries and taverns around Attendorn, Germany. As the company grew, the number of products increased. Drains and overflow fittings came first, and when the first factories were opened, manufacturing expanded to include copper connections and plastic products for sanitary facilities. But we’ve never been satisfied with the status quo. We wanted to improve the industry, so we improved copper press technology, and followed that with invention of the Smart Connect feature. The innovations keep coming.
A global market leader
Today, Viega has become an international market leader with 10 locations and over 4,000 employees worldwide. But at our heart, we are still the same company our founder started, driven by the same passion for quality and the same standards of excellence. We are more than a company; we are family. Our employees make Viega what it is, and we are dedicated to their individual success. When our people achieve great things, so does Viega. We don’t limit our focus from one quarter to the next. Our goal is excellence from generation to generation.
At Viega, our standard is excellence, and we aren’t satisfied until we achieve it. So we want to make it possible for the trades to achieve it too. We help establish new codes and standards. We develop specifications alongside engineers. We train the industry, not just on our own solutions but in best practices as well. The industry is growing, and as world leaders, it is our responsibility to grow with it and help our customers do the same.
Water quality is at the core of Viega’s list of competencies. When it comes to maintaining clean drinking water, we do more than develop products and identify the best materials. We create new solutions that help prevent stagnation in drinking water installations. Then, we offer support through comprehensive service and seminars. Clean water is essential to life, and since we have the solution, it’s our responsibility to share it.
Not all plumbing is invisible. Some of it you have to see every day. So why not make it beautiful? In the pre-wall and drainage technology sectors, we manufacture state-of-the-art products, consistently setting new design standards. Viega has received more than 100 awards for design.
Focusing on what matters to the industry.
A fire protection system can make the difference between life and death. That’s why it’s so important for Viega to provide a comprehensive range of piping systems with fire protection certifications. Our solutions fulfill all the strict regulations designed to prevent fire and can be installed with zero spacing, which makes installations in tight quarters easier. This helps to keep homes and commercial buildings safe, while exceeding current industry standards.
Less isn’t always more. Sometimes less is just enough. With our innovative radiant heating and cooling systems and insulation for our piping, we provide sustainable and energy-efficient options for customers. Our state-of-the-art installation technology makes it possible to complete a project using only the energy that is needed. Not more. Not less. Enough.
Today’s achievements might be great, but tomorrow’s could be greater. That’s the attitude behind Viega innovation. Every day, our team of researchers and developers devote their energy and brainpower to finding new ways to make our industry safer, cleaner, and more efficient. Viega was one of the first to introduce copper press fittings to the market, reducing labor costs exponentially. We were also first with Smart Connect, which provides unbeatable peace of mind knowing your connections are secure. With so many industry-altering solutions today, imagine what tomorrow will bring.
As the leader in innovative plumbing technology, Viega has a long track record of first-time patent applications. This spirit of innovation is obvious in every fitting across all Viega system solutions. Our passion for pushing the boundaries of plumbing technology has helped the industry achieve targets, hit deadlines, and meet budgets. New solutions, improved techniques, and engineered systems provide the market with options that save time and expense.
A leader in first-time patent registrations.
As an internationally trusted system supplier, Viega leads the way in installation technology. Our customers expect the highest level of quality from us, and that’s what our engineered system solutions provide, not only in commercial applications but also for industrial and shipbuilding projects too.
Commercial and residential
Viega offers an extensive range of products for commercial and residential projects such as drinking water, gas, and heating applications. But we also provide solutions for various special purposes. For example, our piping systems are often used in hospitals, where drinking water quality is of the utmost importance, as well as in stadiums and hotels where the system must be able to supply sufficient capacity for brief peak loads. Our radiant heating and cooling solutions provide an ideal combination of comfort and maximum efficiency. Viega pre-wall solutions offer modern, award-winning design solutions for high-quality bathrooms. Add it all together, and the facts are clear. Viega combines technology and design into one superior package.
The harsh conditions and strict safety requirements of industrial projects can take a toll on piping installations. Applications that require systems to withstand extremes and potentially dangerous working environments can limit traditional pipe joining installations. Viega has the answers for industrial projects, offering solutions that can be installed without flame and products that provide reliable, time-tested performance.
The corrosive environments of the shipbuilding market require extremely high-performance piping systems. The material must not only withstand the applications onboard the ship but also the extreme external conditions of the ocean. Cramped installation spaces and strict safety regulations place challenging demands on installers. But Viega always rises to a challenge. Our shipbuilding solutions provide reliable performance in harsh conditions and protect installers at the same time.
Satisfied customers all over the world.
Viega relies on all our customers, large and small, but when an internationally known location chooses to partner with us for their installation technology needs, it’s something to celebrate. These prestigious projects selected Viega systems due to their high quality and reliability, as well as for the added safety they provide in challenging working environments.
Whether it is a hotel, a hospital, residential accommodation or office building, a sports complex, a factory, or a ship, Viega solutions can withstand the tests of time and nature, regardless of how demanding they may be.

Many solutions, one manufacturer
The demands placed on installation technology are becoming more and more complex, often requiring exact planning and complete, integrated solutions. That’s why Viega offers a wide range of products that are all designed to work together, both in their material type as well as in a system. Our solutions are engineered to integrate, allowing customers the ease of total compatibility. Even our subsystem interfaces are consistent. Since installers don’t have to worry that one of our products won’t work with another of our products, installations are fast and easy.
A system that works together
Viega is a pioneer in plumbing safety technology, matched with excellent cost effectiveness. Our PEX solutions fulfill standards, comply with regulations, and serve our customers, not only today but for the future as well. We manufacture our own PEX from raw material to finished product, giving us complete control over quality and distribution. Viega metal fittings like ProPress and MegaPress offer unparalleled confidence that your connections are secure, and Viega pre-wall solutions offer modern, award-winning design solutions for high-quality bathrooms.
We set our own standards at Viega because we wanted to exceed the industry’s expectations. Viega’s standards begin with our raw materials. If you want to manufacture the highest quality products, you have to use the highest quality materials.
We do our own manufacturing. Our foundry, one of the most modern plants in all of Europe, as well as our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities worldwide ensure that our innovations are manufactured to our impeccable standards, going above and beyond to comply and even exceed industry standards.
Begin with quality
Material choice always matters, but when the system is for potable water, only the best lead-free options will do. Our lead-free materials, copper and 316 stainless, and our proprietary Zero Lead bronze exclude any possibility of materials that could compromise clean water. If a drinking water system begins with quality, it’s easier to maintain it.
Materials for all areas of use
As the only manufacturer to offer press fittings in multiple materials, Viega can always offer the right material choice for any installation. Stainless steel, grade 316, is suitable for potable water and also for corrosive environments such as industrial applications. Copper is widely accepted as an all-around solution for use in many applications, suitable for use in small residential projects and durable enough to be used in shipbuilding projects. Other materials such as carbon steel eliminate threading of black iron and galvanized steel pipe, which saves time as well as potential soft tissue injuries for installers. Finally, plastic has an almost unlimited range of uses. For example, high-performance polymers provide for great flexibility and cost-effectiveness in piping systems.
Viega will settle for nothing less than the highest possible quality, and we embrace uncompromising standards of development and production. Thanks to our employees, this goal has become a reality year after year, generation after generation.
Made in Germany and Made in America
Germany is highly regarded as the epitome of efficiency. Known around the world for impressive feats of reliable engineering, Germany is respected as the authority on design, so it’s fitting that Viega started there. And it’s only right that manufacturing remains there. But in 2008 plastics production began in the United States, and in 2016 MegaPress production has too. Still adhering to German standards, U.S. manufacturing provides the exact same quality as the European facilities. German engineering matched with American ingenuity provides complete solutions that meet or exceed industry standards delivered almost to your door.
More testing than in real life
We stand behind our products because we have already tested them far beyond the scope of their eventual applications. Our long-term and high-load testing ensures that all our products meet our approval and comply with standards, legal requirements, and regulations. For new products and techniques, we even stage real-life installations on construction sites to verify their everyday sustainability. Our products are approved to perform in the conditions the standards require, but we wanted to do better than that. We wanted to know that our products can exceed the requirements and perform with excellence far outside the range of the industry’s expectations. Viega’s metal piping systems must be able to withstand temperatures of -30 degrees C without any detriment to their rated specifications. That’s the kind of quality Viega expects.
We are your partner
The greatest motivation for Viega’s success is your success. We want to partner with you to provide you with products and innovative solutions. We offer personalized service, problem-solving support, and direct advice for most industry issues, even outside our own product catalog. Using our comprehensive, up-to-date software, we’ll help plan your projects before the work begins, and after it’s completed, we’ll still be on hand to offer assistance.

The system integrates customer-specific data, which customizes delivery options. Checks and double-checks practically exclude the possibility of error, so deliveries are complete as well as on time. Through technology and innovation, customers can count on our deliveries.
Sharing the wealth
After more than 115 years, Viega has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience that we are eager to share with the industry. That’s why we offer 15 seminar and training centers spread across the globe. Viega training is always up-to-date, always relevant, and always accessible to everyone, whether you’re a novice or a specialist, contractors and engineers alike. We want to share the wealth of our experience to help you be successful.
The keys to the success of our seminars are the skilled instructors who teach both practical applications as well as theoretical content. All courses are designed with our customers in mind, whether the subject matter concerns the latest standards and regulations or such important issues as maintaining drinking water quality or current installation techniques. Viega seminars cover a broad spectrum of subjects, and through hands-on learning they provide our customers with opportunities to improve their own knowledge and experience.
Since 2016, we have been communicating our enthusiasm for quality, the company image, and the Viega brand by means of a broad-based marketing strategy.
