Viking Range, LLC is committed to innovative products of the highest quality. The majority of its product line is proudly made in Greenwood, Mississippi, USA. Viking is a division of the Middleby Corporation and has a proud history.
Viking Range was founded by Fred Carl, Jr. in the 1980s. In the midst of building his own home, he discovered the range he wanted did not exist. So Carl took to the drawing board and after countless late nights, he finally arrived at a hybrid that corralled the cooking power and features of a professional range into a design feasible for home use.
Carl persuaded a small commercial company in southern California to produce the first Viking range for him. After two years of trial, error and extensive testing, the first Viking ranges received American Gas Association certification in late 1986 and shipped in January 1987. Incredible consumer response quickly overwhelmed the contract manufacturer.
