Originally founded in 1898 by A. P. Pedersen, in 1933, a new generation took over the company and had built a new factory in Thinggade, to meet the company’s ever-growing needs. As early as the 1920s, Vikan (Danish for "We Can") began to appear on several of the company's products - but only as branding. For many years, the factory was officially known as VIKAN A/S - Skive Børstefabrik. However, since 1997, Vikan has been the sole name used. Export activities finally commenced in the early 1960s before really taking off in the 1970s. In the 1990s, Vikan introduced the first industrial robots and have an ongoing process of upgrading automation equipment.
