The corporate group Vietz consists of the enterprise Vietz GmbH Hannover and Vietz Schweißtechnik GmbH in Leipzig as well as further international representations spread over four continents. With more than 40 years of experience in construction sites we are your first contact when it comes to producing machines and equipment for pipeline constructions.

As a manufacturer of trend-setting welding and testing technology, bending and lifting devices we deliver machines to construction companies all over the world.

The VIETZ Group can look back on more than 40 years of history.

  • In 1976 Mr. Eginhard Vietz founded Vietz GmbH in Hannover, Germany as a trading company for welding technology. In 1990 Vietz Schweißtechnik GmbH was founded in Leipzig and in 1994 a branch of Vietz GmbH was opened in Essen.
    During these years, Mr. Vietz constantly expanded the product range. The VIETZ Group developed into a system supplier for pipeline construction.
  • In 2004, Vietz Pipeline Equipment Beijing Co Ltd. opened its first production facility outside Europe in China. However, production there was discontinued in 2006.
  • The order situation and expanded production portfolio soon led to the production facilities in Germany no longer being sufficient. In 2008, Plant II opened in Hannover, right next door to the headquarters, with a significantly increased production area.
    At the end of 2010, company founder Eginhard Vietz retired from the management and handed over the management of the VIETZ Group to Ms. Waltraud Vietz.
  • In 2016 Mr. Joseph Sayegh was appointed as further Managing Director of the VIETZ Group.

Today, more than 40 years after its foundation, the VIETZ Group is known nationally and internationally as a reliable partner and renowned producer and system supplier for pipeline construction.
