Vikan A/S is a wholly Danish owned company. W R & D Wells are the proud and exclusive importers of Vikan products into the Australian and New Zealand market.
Our representation and history with Vikan goes back 35 years when we initially only imported three products.
An interesting fact about Vikan is the Danish ownership structure. Vikan is actually owned by a charitable foundation, known as the Vissing Foundation.
This foundation, through the holding company (Vissing Holdings A/S) has a determining influence where the profits, which are generated, get directed.
The Vissing Foundation strongly supports non-profit organizations, which support and operate in the following areas:
- Medical research and other medical related areas.
- Technical research, which especially tends hygiene and environmental issues.
- Other non-profit making aims.
Every year, the foundation distributes several million Danish kroner to such areas; a fact W R & D Wells, as their Australian representatives are very proud.
They have achieved the important ISO accreditations 9001:2000 Quality Standard and 14001 Environmental Standard.
The company has 275 employees and exports 85% of their production worldwide. The company has production facilities in Denmark, Sweden and Estonia.
Vikan has strong corporate values. These are Initiative, Commitment, Integrity and Well Being, values we here at Wells also strongly encourage and support.
