Since its inception in 1983, Vinge has stood for innovation in an industry heavily rooted in tradition and custom. The reason for this is simple - to show our clients the way forward we need to lead the way and be prepared to explore new opportunities. The business world never stands still and neither do we. A brief look at our history clearly highlights this philosophy.
