McPherson, KS —Viega LLC has added production lines to its Kansas manufacturing operations, an investment the company says will quicken distribution and allow the company to move more production from Germany to the United States.
The expansion is a 200,000-square-foot manufacturing plant which will create a to-be-determined number of manufacturing jobs.
“These latest expansions will allow us to increase production of our ProPress copper line and get shipments to distributors and customers faster than ever,” stated Viega COO Robert Boots.
When fully operational, the new plant will house additional ProPress production lines of various products and sizes.
Many of those products have been manufactured in Germany, but Viega moved some production here in order to accommodate growth in the North American market, according to Viega’s director of manufacturing, Eric Walker.
