Viessmann U.S. celebrates a quarter century of pioneering products while looking ahead to even greater innovation and growth.
Michael Luz, Viessmann U.S. president and CEO, notes: “Over the past 25 years we have developed a solid reputation among contractors and end users in residential, commercial and institutional markets. Remember when we started here in 1990, the defining technology of our times, the Internet, was still obscure. Yet even then, Viessmann was introducing forward-thinking technologies such as high-efficiency boilers and sophisticated electronic controls. We were at the forefront of bringing condensing boilers to the American market.”
Among the innovative products Viessmann introduced in the U.S. over the past 25 years were Vitola Biferral and Atola Renox boilers, an industry first in efficiency and system controls; the Vitodens residential and Vitocrossal commercial high-efficiency condensing boilers and the introduction of renewable energy systems, which include thermal solar systems and woody biomass boilers that burn wood pellets or wood chips.
Today, Viessmann worldwide is expanding way beyond boilers into highly efficient and renewable energy equipment. “Like our European sister companies, Viessmann U.S. will be evolving,” says Luz. “We are becoming a pioneering energy equipment manufacturer by introducing sophisticated renewable energy technology in solar thermal, biomass and other areas, including technology that will convert heat to electricity.”
