MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) - A manufacturer of pipe fixtures says it will expand its warehouse in McPherson and add 100 jobs to the operation.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1FayZ1f ) Viega plans to break ground in November on an 80,000-square-foot addition to its 439,000-square-foot warehouse and manufacturing operation.

The company is a German-based manufacturer of pipe fixtures for plumbing, heating and industrial use. Its U.S. headquarters is in Wichita. The expansion will allow the company to start making MegaPress carbon steel press fittings, starting in 2016.

Viega owns and operates five manufacturing and distribution centers around the United States.
