Viessmann charitable and community initiatives

Through our employees, customers, installation partners and suppliers, Viessmann has a UK-wide network of individuals who are keen to use their skills to give something back. This is in addition to corporate-level charitable and community initiatives driven both by our UK team in Telford and our global headquarters in Allendorf, Germany. The need for heat and hot water is a basic one, and to help out, we do our best to identify and support projects and fundraising activities  where we can make the difference.

From cake sales to our charitable installations with installers, here are some of our stories…
