The VELUX story began in 1941 when Villum Kann
Rasmussen first saw the opportunities for developing cheap, useful

Many developments in roof windows and skylights, flashings and decoration and sunscreening products have followed and we have taken our business to every market in the world were we could find sloping roofs.
