Contrary to popular opinion the Vikings were more than just marauding warriors. In the 19th and 10th Centuries they organised commerce in Northern Europe, penetrating the Russian rivers down to the Black Sea and were the first Europeans to reach North America.
Viking, started in 1989 in Keighley West Yorkshire, has a team of specialists in Tape, Adhesives and Abrasives and is one of 3M™’s Premier Distributors. The Company has pioneered the use of the Internet, tailoring its site to provide a safe passage through the maze of available Adhesive products.
An on-line helpline manned by expert’s deals with hundreds of enquiries a month. No matter how comprehensive an internet service may be there is still a requirement for face to face contact.
In conjunction with 3M™ Tapes and Abrasives, Viking have highlighted a requirement for a specialist Tapes, Adhesive and Abrasives Distributor in South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Derbyshire. They are opening their first branch office in between Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham.
Supported by two Viking Technical salesmen and two 3M™ Technical specialists, the aim is to provide manufacturing industry in the area with quality products and cost effective solutions.
With over 40 years of experience we aim to give our Customers ‘Peace of Mind’. As part of their initial programme Viking and 3M™ will be promoting the new low cost range of VHB™ Tapes for Signage and Metal Fabrication and the new range of 3M™ Industrial Sealants giving high performance at attractive prices.
Stuart Fellows, 3M™’s Sales Manager, comments “This is an exciting opportunity, Viking will provide a real focus for our specialist range of products and I am looking forward to improving our penetration in what is one of the fastest growing areas for Manufacturing Industry in the Country”.
