In early September, Viessmann celebrated 25 years of business in the United States at the company’s U.S. headquarters in Warwick, R.I., with special VIP and open house events. More than 150 guests attended the anniversary day of celebration Sept. 9 with speeches, a gourmet luncheon and a walking tour of the Warwick facility.

The celebration was highlighted by speeches from Prof. Dr. Martin Viessmann, CEO and president of the executive board; Dr. Michael Luz, managing director of Viessmann U.S.; Rhode Island’s Lt. Gov. Daniel McKee; Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea; and Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian.

In his keynote address, Viessmann spoke about the growth and evolution of Viessmann’s investment in the U.S. market which started in the 1970s, the importance of the company’s enduring trade partnerships with its customers and Viessmann’s long standing commitments to energy efficiency and sustainability.

Viessmann specifically talked about the company’s precedent-setting accomplishments such as reaching high standards of energy efficiency and German climate policy targets well before the 2050 date established by the German government.

An open house event Sept. 10 for 200 contractors and heating professionals included state-of-the-art technical training, product information as well as demonstrations and networking.
