Founded in 1819 in Vienna and traded since 1869 on the Vienna Stock Exchange, Wienerberger can look back on a great tradition. Only in 1986 the company started its dynamic expansion, which has focused on building materials since the introduction of Value Management in 1997. This transformed Wienerberger from a local Austrian brick-maker into the world’s largest producer of bricks within a few years. The acquisition of Pipelife not only marked a strategic milestone in the expansion of the core business, but also reduced the Group’s dependence on heavily cyclical new residential construction. Wienerberger became one of the largest pipe producers in Europe through this transaction, with an extensive product portfolio of pipe systems that includes Pipelife (plastic pipe systems) and Steinzeug-Keramo (ceramic pipe systems). The number of production facilities rose to a level of groupwide 221 plants in 30 countries including 31 production sites for the pipe systems.
