The VKR Group is committed to living up to its social responsibility

For more than 75 years, technology from the VKR Group has brought nature closer to people. It started with the VELUX roof window, which in 1942 blazed the trail for the group and founder Villum Kann Rasmussen.

In his time as the figurehead of the VKR Group, graduate engineer Villum Kann Rasmussen took out more than 55 patents and invented a large number of products that paved the way for the VKR Group’s success.

Today, VKR Holding owns a number of companies that still bring nature’s gifts into the world’s living rooms. The companies make products within the following areas: roof windows & skylights, vertical windows and solar thermal energy.

By the end of 2019, the VKR Group as a whole had about 16,000 employees in 41 countries, and VKR Holding is owned by the Kann Rasmussen family and VILLUM FONDEN.
