Presenting Sponsor FIS Cross-Country World Cup
Founded in 1917, the family company is run by a supervisory board under the chairmanship of Dr Martin Viessmann. With its annual turnover of EUR 1.6 billion and 8900 employees, the Viessmann Group counts itself among the top 3 European heating technology manufacturers. Viessmann’s structure is distinctly international; with 16 factories and production plants in Europe, Canada and China, a network of 37 domestic subsidiaries and 120 sales offices worldwide. Sales outside of Germany account for 54 percent of total turnover.
With its comprehensive product range, Viessmann supplies heating technology for all energy sources, output ranges and fields of application – that is, for familiy homes, large residential buildings, commercial and industrial properties as well as for local heating networks.
Since 1993, Viessmann has been a well-known partner of winter sports. Whether biathlon, toboggan, ski jumping, cross-country skiing or Nordic combined, Viessmann supports international events, competitions and successful athletes. Among them, Olympic Champion Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle or the first ever winner of the Viessmann FIS Tour de Ski performance by Craft, Tobias Angerer, carry the distinctive Viessmann logo. As presenting sponsor of the FIS Cross-Country-Worldcup 2010/2011 presented by Viessmann, Viessmann takes its commitment to winter sports one step further.
