Viega supports IndiaSkills 2018 and trains winners for WorldSkills 2019
Viega, one of the world’s leading system suppliers for installation technology, is actively supporting IndiaSkills 2018, the national vocational competition for young professionals, together with the Indian Plumbing Skill Council (IPSC) and the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). Along with the monetary sponsorship most importantly this support includes the provision of installation material in plumbing such as PE-Xc pipes and fittings, concealed cisterns, flush plates and tools. Additionally, Viega also provided intensive training for the champions from Haryana, Punjab, Chandigarh, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Odisha and Maharashtra. The next goal will be the participation of the winners at the 2019 WorldSkills professional championships in Kazan, Russia. Viega has already pledged the necessary support for this event as well. Anna Viegener, Chief Strategy Officer and Viega shareholder says: “One of the main reasons for the success of Viega installation systems is the skill of the trained craftsmen who install these systems — in Europe and America as well as in Australia and India. For this reason, we have been supporting the qualified training of young people in the relevant professions for many years. Both IndiaSkills 2018 and the WorldSkills next year in Russia are excellent opportunities to make more people aware of these demanding professions and showcase the technological perspectives of home automation.” Viega was founded in Attendorn, Germany, in 1899. Since 2005, Viega has operated successfully in the Indian market. After several years with independent sales representatives, in 2015 the legal entity Viega India Pvt. Ltd. was founded in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, to foster the company’s local footprint in India. This includes investments in a production facility in Sanand to serve local market needs.
