Viking Range was founded in the 1980's when a gentleman named Fred Carl was building his home and realized that the range he wanted - one that harnessed the cooking power and precision of a professional range for feasible home use - didn't exist. After two years of development and testing, Viking ranges went into production and opened a manufacturing plant in Greenwood, Mississippi. Today, Viking's manufacturing facilities in Greenwood span over 500,000 square feet to meet the demands of their growing line of indoor and outdoor kitchen products. As a company, Pirch feels a kindred spirit with Viking - the spirit of seeing something that was missing in the marketplace and bringing it to life in the best way possible. We recognize and appreciate Viking's commitment to U.S. manufacturing and creating outstanding products for our customer's homes.
