Viking Fender is a family-owned business founded by brothers Kurt and Guy Grimsgaard in 1982. Kurt's experience as a crew and supply boat captain showed him, first hand, the necessity of a properly fendered boat. Guy's experience with machinery and hydraulics was instrumental in designing the machines needed to prepare the raw materials for Viking's line of products.
We also seek out new products and manufacturing methods to incorporate into our line of fendering. This quest has resulted in the addition of the Softlite ionomer foam fender, a tremendous breakthrough providing many advantages over present day foam fenders.
