Every Story Has a Beginning…
Our starts in the early 60’s with Rickard Pålsson and Hans Pettersson, two budding entrepreneurs, their vision, passion and will to change the world we live in. This little pedal car is a well-preserved link to our history.
“When we started VEIDEC in 1993 we had only four chemical products. Now we have more than three hundred, but our ambition is the same now as then: When you use one of our products, you can rest assured that you have selected the best alternative regarding quality, the user’s health and our environment.
Our passion and our values originate from the Swedish tradition where respect for nature and our fragile environment play an important role. The world that we leave behind is the world our children will inherit and live in. To us, it’s as natural to protect the environment as it is to care for our children.”
– Rickard Pålsson and Hans Pettersson, founders of VEIDEC
"With simplicity in mind, honesty in our foundations, friendly eyes and a winner’s heart, we deliver high-tech products for repair and maintenance."
