The Viessmann group is an international leader in the area of heating systems. This market has been strongly influenced by the structural changes within the heating technology sector. These changes are due to various issues such as soaring energy prices, scarce resources and carbon dioxide emissions. It is therefore necessary to produce highly energy-efficient systems for oil and gas, heat pumps, pellet burners and solar energy systems for hot water production and heating in order to reduce the use of fossil fuels like oil and gas through the implementation of highly efficient technologies as well as through the supplanting of fossil fuels by renewable resources such as sunlight, geothermal energy (heat pumps) and biomass. This is Viessmann’s mission.
The company was founded in 1917 and is today run by Dr Martin Viessmann,the third generation of the Viessmann family to do so. The group’s turnover is around 1.4 billion Euros and it employs 7,400 people. The Viessmann group is represented internationally with 12 factories in Germany, France, Canada, Poland, Austria and China, and distributors in Germany and 35 other countries as well as 119 sales representatives. Fifty percent of Viessmann’s turnover is generated through export.
With its comprehensive product range for all energy sources and a performance range from 1,5 kW to 20 MW, Viessmann is well set for the future. Solutions for varying needs and budgets are offered in three distinct programmes – 100, 200 and 300 – that differ in specification and price. The product range also includes wood-burning systems in the mid-level and high performance ranges up to 13 MW. The programme also encompasses air conditioning systems for residential use and for small businesses. Viessmann products have received many internationally-respected design awards.
