Viega recently announced it will move its North American headquarters to Broomfield, Colo. The company said it will build a new headquarters and educational training facility in the city, with construction set to begin this summer. Relocation activities will begin immediately to temporary office space with the move completed by Dec. 31, 2017.

Viega employs nearly 500 people in North America with a central manufacturing and distribution center in McPherson, Kan., as well as distribution centers in Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania, and another educational training facility in New Hampshire. The company was headquartered in Wichita, Kan., for 10 years and all current employees have the opportunity to move with the company. It will eventually employ about 200 people in Broomfield.

Kansas, Viega stated, remains a significant part of the growth plans for the company through the manufacturing and distribution center in McPherson.

“Moving to the greater Denver area ultimately makes our corporate staff more accessible to our customers and partners throughout the country,” Viega CEO Dave Garlow said.
