Testimonials
Darin Miller Miller Pallet Company
I've been in business for 13 years and I have always run a Viking. In my opinion, if you don't have a Viking then you can forget the pallet business; Viking is the way to go. For what we do, the Turbo is exactly what we need. Cody worked really hard to sell it to us and he did a good job. Richmond was a selling point and it is where we got together with Cody to start the process of the new 505. We're very pleased with Viking.

"At the very start, the Viking salesman told us, 'we're going to be there for you after the sale' and they have yet to break that promise to our company."
Pat McGinn Bass Lumber Company
"Viking does not force you to upgrade the equipment.  They have good technical support and phone communication, giving us what we need quickly."
Darren Turner Pontrilas Timber
Their technical service staff has in-depth knowledge of their machines and really understand how they operate - which enables them to do remote diagnostics and infield technical guidance.  This guarantees we have a high degree of up-time.
Tad Hegsted Challenger Pallets
Over the years, Viking engineering has always stood behind their machines.  We not only know that they will help us with upgrades and spare parts, but that they will react quickly to support us with anything we need.
Tad Hegsted Challenger Pallets
We rarely have maintenance issues with our Champions but when we do, Viking understands how important it is to keep the machines operating in my factory.
Jimmy Wilson Bay Wood Products Inc.
It was Friday evening and we had to get an order out by Sunday. We called Viking forhelp and their service technician answered on his way home from work. He told us the moment he got home he would get online and help us solve the problem.  Within a half an hour, Viking discovered the problem and eliminated the panic on a Friday night.

Even with the simplest issues, it is comforting having a voice on the other line to guide us.  I don't know what we would have done without them.
Paul Bucich Sherwood Bedding
"With Viking machines we have improved our processes, reduced our labor, and increased our quality."
Cesar Granillo R&E Pallets Inc
"We decided to buy new vs. a used machine because even though there would be cost savings buying used, a new Viking machine came with training, a longer warranty, and phone support."
Cesar Granillo R&E Pallets Inc
"There's a reason why Viking is such a respected brand in the pallet industry.  Not only does the Viking machine prove it, but the service that was provided during install and training really impressed us."
Gil Viera The Pallet Group
"Viking's call center is brilliant.  They can be blindfolded over the phone and can still fix a machine.  Even if we don't know the best way to explain our problem, the call center is still able to figure it out and get our machines running. Without the call center, life would be impossible."
Gil Viera The Pallet Group
"Viking's call center is second to none.  We have tried other competitors who we couldn't reach when our machine was down.  If we have a problem, over the phone, the call center can figure it out and we are up and running in 5 minutes."
Gil Viera The Pallet Group
"The call center is the heart of Viking.  They provide excellent guidance so we are able to fix our problems."
Gil Viera The Pallet Group
"It's our 17th year in the pallet business and I wouldn't put anything else in my facility but a Viking machine. Viking makes excellent equipment."
Gil Viera The Pallet Group
"On a scale of 1-10, I would rate Viking's call center, service technicians, machines, and parts department all a 10."
Gil Viera The Pallet Group
"Viking is a big star in my book. Without Viking, we wouldn't have had the success we have had.  The key is that the machines will run for a very long time and pay themselves back."
Henry Bowman C&L Wood Products
I buy new machines because the life of a Viking machine is extremely long.  I buy new machines to take advantage of Viking’s most recent improvements.
Henry Bowman C&L Wood Products
I choose Viking nailing machines because their extremely long life, their adaptability to the specialized American stringer pallet market and their outstanding technical support.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
I was really impressed with the Viking Service Tech that installed our Champion QC306.  He took the time to go through everything step by step and made sure that we didn’t get ahead of ourselves.  He helped us a lot at the start, then let us figure out how to run the machine on our own as we learned.  Overall, it was just a really good progression from start to finish.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
Buying a Viking is a partnership.  Viking is #1 in how they build and service machines, the company that buys a Viking should have a #1 mindset in how they do things too.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
If the company that buys the machine takes ownership in how fast the machine is running and they look at it the way Viking looks does and try to perfect every issue, they can maximize production.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
Viking is a very good company, I can’t say enough good things about them.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
We see Viking as number 1 in the business, no one has shown us anything that comes close.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
Viking should really pride themselves on their tech support, you have great people there.  When we have small issues on the machine, we can call up the tech support and know they are second to nobody.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
Viking has really changed the way we make pallets, the way we can quote, and the way we run our business.  It’s been a game changer for us and how competitive we can be in our market place.
Tad Hegsted Challenger Pallets
We've proven the short changeover times in our Montana plant.  It only takes us 10 to 15 minutes to go from a 3 to 4 stringer pallet.  From one type of 3 stringer to another, it only takes us 5 minutes.
