A heritage of better ideas since 1899 Viega s heritage of innovation and quality began in Attendorn, Germany in 1899 when our founder, Franz-Anselm Viegener, introduced a new design for brass beer taps. By 1901, Viegener s company had evolved to begin manufacturing home plumbing products. In 1999, the familyowned Viega decided to offer a selection of products in the United States. Initial product offerings in the United States consisted of PEX radiant floor heating systems. Soon after, Viega expanded their U.S. product offerings by introducing Viega ProPress, a totally new system of fittings and valves to connect copper pipe. The new century saw rapid growth in Viega innovations, including PureFlow PEX press plumbing technology, ProPressG for solderless fuel gas applications, technology to connect copper to PEX and the Smart Connect feature to quickly identify unpressed fittings. Now, Viega products are distributed across the United States, Canada and Latin America. 2 Viega s copper press technology launches in the U.S., the Viega ProPress system.
