Open house

Saturday, September 17th, 2016

VIKING was founded in 1981, exactly 35 years ago. We thought this would be the perfect time to open our doors to the public and to invite everyone to join us in celebrating this important milestone. We have organised an exciting and varied programme of events, which will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We will set up various stations to give you an insight into the work that we do. In our factory tour you'll learn lots of interesting details about the development and production of VIKING gardening power tools and STIHL battery-powered products, which we ship all over the world from Langkampfen. Outdoors you'll have the opportunity to try out the latest additions to our range of gardening power tools. And if you like it so much that you want to stay, we'll be happy to provide you with information about current job openings at VIKING.

Don't miss out on the chance to see the fastest lawn mower in the world. This 400 hp lawn tractor set a new official speed world record in the autumn of 2015 with a speed of 215 km/h, earning it a place in the Guinness World Records. Our world record driver Pekka (Per-Kristian) Lundefaret will be on hand to answer all of your questions about this unique lawn tractor and to show you what lies under the bonnet of this converted VIKING T6.

We will host a slalom competition in which you will have the chance to show what you can do with one of our original lawn tractors. The victor will be awarded the title of VIKING Lawn Tractor Grand Prix Winner. For our younger visitors, there will be a VIKING bouncy castle, a Mini-Trac race and much more. To round off this fantastic day at VIKING, we will have a raffle with a chance to win great prizes, as well as music, food and drink.

We hope that you will be able to join us at this special event and look forward to seeing you.

Your VIKING team
