Viega has started production of its MegaPress and MegaPressG carbon steel press fittings at its manufacturing facility in McPherson, KS. The company broke ground for the 80,000-square-foot manufacturing addition to its compound 2014. The new manufacturing facility cold forms 1/2- to 2-inch press by press and straight elbow MegaPress and MegaPressG fittings. The plant can manufacture three million MegaPress fittings per year.
“MegaPress use continues to grow in the U.S. market and by manufacturing it here, we can more effectively and efficiently deliver MegaPress product solutions to our distributors and customers across the country,” said Dave Garlow, president and CEO of Viega.
These fittings are the first Viega metals products to be made in the U.S.
