Vikan and the Environment
Vikan microfibre mops are manufactured at our own factory in Estonia. Having our own manufacturing facility helps us keep full control over production processes and quality, and makes it easy for you to document compliance with CSR policies.Partnering with Vikan can also help you meet your environmental goals by using Nordic Eco-labelled products and by reducing microplastic shedding, for example. Recentmicroplastic eco-testing was carried out on our textiles, in which the majority of our microfibres received an A or A+ Rating.

Business with a wider perspective
90% of the shares in Vikan are owned by the Vissing Foundation (Vissing Fonden), a non-profit charitable foundation set up in 1979 by the far-sighted family that then owned Vikan. This unusual ownership structure is a key part of the whole Vikan perspective – beyond short-term thinking and simple here-and-now profits, in favour of always doing right by our customers, and making long-term efforts to make lasting improvements.
The Vissing Foundation activities include providing funding for near-patient research in disease prevention, diagnostics and treatment related to cancer and diabetes, focusing on work that features strong potential for immediate, practical impact on patient treatment in these fields.
The foundation’s work is a constant source of pride and inspiration for all of us at Vikan – part of the proverbial “making a difference” ambitions we have as part of working at this company.
