Safety in focus

Safety at sea since 1960 ​​​

The story of VIKING starts in Esbjerg. A windswept Danish coastal town where people know that the sea gives - and that it takes away.

For decades, anxious families waited through storms for signs of life from their husbands and fathers out fishing in the rough North Seas. Dedicated to bringing safety and security to both the fishermen and their families, local entrepreneur Tage Sørensen (1915-2016) founded VIKING as a manufacturer of liferafts.

Over the course of the next 60 years, commercial fishing has almost disappeared from Esbjerg, however VIKING, now a global maritime safety solutions leader whose name is synonymous with safety at sea, remains. Today, the company employs over 3000 people. Our global organization spans 8 production facilities, 85+ branch offices, 3 training academies and 275+ certified servicing stations. Learn more here.
