In 1899 Franz Viegener created a company in Attendorn, Germany, manufacturing beer taps, forged from brass, for their domestic market. Continuing the family business, in 1921 his son founded a new company called FV in Buenos Aires, Argentina, manufacturing brass faucetry. In 1992 the company starts in the United States, and in 2008 we launched Franz Viegener Premium Collection.
