It started out as a good idea

For more than 80 years, the VKR Group has been passionate about bringing
daylight, fresh air and better environment into people’s everyday lives.

Villum Kann Rasmussen (1909-1993)
was an inventive and resourceful man,
and the inventor of the VELUX roof window.

In 1941, he established the VKR Group that
today is a global business.

All his life, Villum Kann Rasmussen
was an engineer, an industrialist, an inventor
and a philanthropist.
