The event was broadcast online at There, the company presented all the innovations of the Integrated Viessmann Solution Offering range during and after ISH 2021.

Hans Georg Pauli said:  "It is a fantastic achievement that the entire Viessmann team achieves year after year. Taking the top spot is one thing, but defending it 15 times is quite another. Viessmann is fortunate not only to have partners, but also real fans. This is also due to the fact that weaknesses, which can be found from time to time in the performance chart, are analysed and remedied. Listening to partners and responding to their wishes is one of Viessmann's strengths - and this has been evident in the 'mi' performance review for over 30 years. Congratulations on the 16th overall victory in a row as no. 1 trade partner!"
