As a result, more and more customers came to know the company’s brushes as Vikan brushes, and when Skive Børstefabrik moved into its new factory in 1956, the Vikan name took pride of place on the gable of the building.
But even after this, the official name of the company remained as “Vikan A/S – Skive Børstefabrik”, and this was not formally altered until 1997. Even to this day, the locals in Skive still call Vikan børstefabrikken – the brush factory.
The original idea behind the Vikan name – about the right combination of manual effort and the right cleaning tool – is actually something that the company has adhered to for many, many years.
We still believe that the appropriate combination of the best cleaning implements with the right amount of human effort and dexterity (with suitable doses of time and chemicals added into the equation) provide the best, safest and most effective cleaning results.
Our manufacturing capabilities and our distinctive expertise within the specialist field of hygienic cleaning tools bear eloquent witness to these proud historical origins.
