Viessmann has opened a new plant for the manufacture of wall-mounted gas boilers for the Chinese market. In addition to the factory the company has also built a centre for research and development.

Viessmann has operated in China for 20 years and has five sales offices and hundreds of showrooms. The new site is centrally located in one of the most important commercial areas of the country, close to Viessmann’s partners, customers and many suppliers.

In his welcome address at the inauguration event on November 05, Dr Martin Viessmann, Chairman of the Viessmann Group, said: “We see an enormous potential in the Chinese market and have decided to expand our production capacities here. Through this newly acquired proximity (to Viessmann’s partners, customers and suppliers), we will be able to supply the market with solutions even more effectively.”

Max Viessmann, co-chief executive of the Viessmann Group, added: “China is one of the most important markets in the world, not only for individual heating systems but also for innovative and comfortable living.

“The country is a true champion of innovation, especially concerning digital applications – and is therefore also a role model for Europe. We want to make the most out of these opportunities.”

In keeping with Viessmann’s mission to create living spaces for future generations, and to symbolise a commitment to climate protection, a tree will be planted in the dry, western region of China for each of the attendees present at the inauguration ceremony.

The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) estimates that a sizeable proportion of a building’s lifecycle carbon is emitted during construction – 35% and 51% for office and residential properties respectively.

These findings have prompted campaigns for developers to prioritise the restoration of older properties over demolishing and replacing them at high carbon costs.
