German plumbing equipment manufacturer Viega, LLC is moving its U.S. headquarters, and 190 new jobs, to #Broomfield after finding 12 acres of warehouse space for sale.

The company, whose corporate headquarters are in Attendorn, Germany, will move their United States headquarters from Wichita, Kansas to Broomfield.

The company is in the process of buying about 12 acres to construct a Broomfield manufacturing building at 575 Interlocken Blvd to build a 20,000-square-foot training center and a 60,000 square foot headquarters building.
“We are glad that you’re coming here,” Mayor Randy Ahrens said. “We’re thrilled. We had the State of the City the other day and I just about announced you’re coming.”

Construction is expected to start this year with completion by the end of 2017.

Viega is a family owned company, Lars Erkelenz, a supply chain project manager for Viega said, and is involved in the community, which is a good fit with Broomfield.

“Viega is a family-owned company and they are involved in a community,” Erkelenz said, “and that is something you will like. They engage themselves.”

The firm was founded in 1899 to sell brass beer taps, and moved into plumbing in the early 1900s. Its North American operations were launched just 17 years ago with the Wichita headquarters, and then an educational facility was added in Nashua, New Hampshire 10 years ago. Manufacturing plants were built in Reno, Nevada in 2006 and McPherson, Kansas in 2008.

The company now is a global leader in press pipe fitting technology and manufacturing, selling, and distributing thousands of products for industrial, commercial and residential applications, as well as water quality solutions.

The proposed training center will result in the addition of 3 jobs, according to a Broomfield city council memo.

Council members approved an agreement that would provide Viega with a 50 percent rebate of the city and county’s Business Personal Property Tax estimated at $99,793, according to the memo, for a term not to exceed 10 years.

The company’s new headquarters will qualify for a real property tax rebate of up to $353,000 for the same length of time.
