Viega, one of the lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of plumb­ing and heat­ing in­stal­la­tion tech­nol­ogy, re­cently in­au­gu­rated its man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity at Sanand, Ahmed­abad on 13th march 2018. The in­au­gu­ra­tion saw Manoj Maithani, Vice pres­i­dent Sales and Mar­ket­ing at Viega In­dia pvt. ltd., wel­com­ing cus­tomers and em­ploy­ees of Viega In­dia along with the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the ex­ec­u­tive board of the group.

The 1,60,000 sq. ft. plant in­cludes a lo­gis­tic Cen­ter, re­search and De­vel­op­ment Depart­ment and a Cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­ter. Floor drains and toi­let cis­terns are cur­rently be­ing man­u­fac­tured at this fa­cil­ity for the In­dian mar­ket. Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion Manoj Maithani, says, “’make in In­dia’ is not only the epony­mous In­dian gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tive, but also the mark of qual­ity that will char­ac­terise Viega prod­ucts for the In­dian mar­ket from now. In the com­ing years, we want to lo­cally man­u­fac­ture prod­ucts that we cur­rently im­port in In­dia, hence, we have de­signed the plant. It will also help us meet the chang­ing pro­duc­tion re­quire­ments and mar­ket needs.” Anna Viegener, Chief Strat­egy Of­fi­cer and Viega Share­holder says, that “The open­ing of the plant in Sanand is a major high­light in our 119-year com­pany his­tory, which be­gan in 1899 with three em­ploy­ees in a back­yard in At­ten­dorn, Ger­many.” Adding fur­ther in­sight she says, “To viega, Hy­giene for san­i­tary fa­cil­i­ties in gen­eral and drink­ing wa­ter in par­tic­u­lar is one of the core com­pe­ten­cies, to which we ded­i­cate our­selves with pas­sion and great com­mit­ment.” Claus Holst-Gy­de­sen, CEO of Viega Hold­ing GmbH & Co. KG., also shares his words, say­ing “In­dia is a major pil­lar for our global growth plans. With 1.3 bil­lion in­hab­i­tants and a rapidly grow­ing econ­omy, of­fers enor­mous po­ten­tial for us to grow in the In­dian mar­ket. In line with our sales growth, we in­tend to ex­pand the lo­cal team by 120 em­ploy­ees over the next few years.”

Also, the com­pany has been sup­port­ing the ‘Team Swachh Bharat’ ini­tia­tive, which is the of­fi­cial part­ner of the In­dian gov­ern­ment’s ‘Swachh Bharat mis­sion’. ‘Team Swachh Bharat’ has set it­self the task of in­creas­ing the aware­ness of chil­dren at 3,500 schools in In­dia on the topic of hy­giene and the use of san­i­tary fa­cil­i­ties.
