Company profile

    Daylight and fresh air. That’s our business
    For more than 70 years, the VELUX Group has created better living environments for people around the world. Using daylight and fresh air.



    Our solutions

    The VELUX product programme includes roof windows and modular skylights as well as a range of decoration and sun screenings, roller shutters, installation solutions and remote controls.

    Our products ensure a healthy indoor climate. For work and learning. For play and pleasure. They give back to the environment by being highly energy-efficient, generating more energy than goes into producing them. Giving back also guides our way of doing business. We care for the people we work with and the communities we’re a part of.

    We serve customers and partners with local know-how and work closely with them to develop better living environments for people. Today and in the future.








    The Model Company Objective. The way we do business

    In 1965, our founder, Villum Kann Rasmussen, formulated the Model Company Objective.
    It still guides our way of doing business in the VELUX Group.


    In everything we do, we set a standard of excellence. For product quality, for business conduct and for responsible citizenship. 

    Our solutions create better living environments. So does our way of doing business. By engaging respectfully with the people we work with; by giving back to the societies we do business in; and by working responsibly with the natural resources we all depend on.

    We create value for society and a profit for our business. A profit we use to stimulate innovation and set even higher standards for sustainable living in buildings. That’s an ambitious goal. But our vision and values help us get there.

    Build to last. The highest quality standards
    “One experiment is better than a thousand expert views.”

    These words from our founder, Villum Kann Rasmussen, sum up the way we work at the VELUX Group.

    Coming up with new ideas and putting them to the test to see whether they meet the highest quality standards.


    Testing quality to the limit

    Quality testing is not something we take lightly. In fact, we take it to the limit. We have a Test Centre dedicated to ensuring that our products really are built to last. Most important of all, we take our solutions into the real world for the ultimate test.

    To test the viability of climate-neutral buildings, we’ve built six full-scale demonstration buildings in five countries. And we’ve let people live and work in them – to make sure energy-efficient building also makes for a healthy and comfortable indoor environment.
    Watch how the VELUX Test Centre tests our products to the limit.

    Join the dialogue

    The VELUX Daylight Symposium brings together some of the world's leading daylight experts to discuss the use of daylight for sustainable building.

    Our International VELUX Award for Students of Architecture invites the future ‘daylight engineers’ to explore the theme of daylight and share their ideas for sustainable daylight solutions.

    Our VELUX International Design Award focuses on designing blinds of the future. This design award challenges students to come up with innovative ways of changing the indoor environment purely through screening or softening of sunlight.

    Experience highlights from the VELUX Daylight Symposium and check out the amazing entries to the International VELUX Award for Students of Architecture and the VELUX International Design Award.
