Chicago — The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) is pleased to announce that Viega has become an Affiliate Sponsor of ASPE for 2013. Viega is the global leader in manufacturing and distributing plumbing, heating, and pipe joining systems for the residential, commercial, and industrial markets.
“Viega is proud to become one of ASPE’s first Affiliate Sponsors,” says Robert Gottermeier, Viega’s Vice President of Business Development and an ASPE member since 1986. “ASPE has enhanced the entire plumbing industry through education, member support, research, and standards development. Many of the key principles that ASPE stands for mirror the beliefs and culture of Viega.”
As an ASPE Affiliate Sponsor, Viega heightens awareness of its products and services within ASPE’s membership base—the engineers, designers, and contractors who make specifying decisions about the plumbing products that ASPE Affiliate Sponsors manufacture. “ASPE’s Affiliate Sponsorship Program is designed to help our manufacturer partners enhance their image as a supporter of the plumbing design industry,” says David Jern, ASPE's Director of Affiliate Relations. The program offers several ways to consistently build brand and company recognition year-round via exposure in the Society’s print and digital media outlets as well as at Society events. ASPE Affiliate Sponsors also gain feedback on their products and service via linked responses in ASPE’s digital media.
“This is a great unity for furthering the plumbing engineering profession,” Gottermeier says.
