Our origin: made in Germany.
Viega is currently represented at 7 locations in Germany. Next to the headquarter you will find four productions sites and offices at the university RWTH Aachen as well as at the Technologiezentrum (Center of Technology) in Dortmund.
Viega’s story began at the headquarters in 1899 in what is known as the “Villa”. The building where the company was founded still stands to this day and is directly in front of Viega’s management building in the centre of the Hanseatic town of Attendorn. Around 25,000 people live here in the heart of Germany’s Sauerland region. Thanks to its proximity to the Ebbegebirge and Rothaargebirge mountains and two bathing lakes, Attendorn offers a whole host of sports, leisure and recreation activities.
Viega’s logistics centre featuring almost 100,000 storage bays is situated just a stone’s throw from the headquarters. Our competence centre for gunmetal as well as one of our 18 seminar centres are also located in Ennest. What’s more, an interactive training centre – Viega World – is currently being built here, and is already causing a stir throughout the construction industry!
One thing that makes this Viega factory in the Weimar region so unique is the fact that it has more employees than the municipality has inhabitants. They produce more than 6,000 items across an area covering 80,000 m². What’s more, Großheringen provides the base for our state-of-the-art training workshop, where we teach an average of over 50 apprentices and prepare them for their professional future.
Our newest factory is situated in eastern Bavaria, in the district of Straubing-Bogen, and is home to our competence centre for plastic piping. Here, we manufacture products including Raxinox, the potable water pipe with stainless-steel inliner that can be bent by hand and which has now been in practical application for over a quarter of a century.
The small Innovation office at the RWTH Aachen Campus facilitates the joint collaboration with academia and startups. Based in the INC Invention Center, the team is part of a vibrant campus ecosystem that helps Viega to develop innovative products better, faster and leaner in order to tackle the major challenges of tomorrow.

One of the offices is located at the university in Dortmund - more specific at the Science and Technology Campus - one of the leading addresses for high-tech in Germany with around 300 companies and a total of more than 10,000 employees.
Our second and newest IT office is in Marsdorf, Cologne.
