About us

Who we are

Sport has always been an integral part of our lives, and for more than 30 years we have created a company that combines passion with business.

Inspired by the values that accompany sportsmen and sportswomen every day in pushing their limits, we are constantly developing and setting ourselves new goals. From the beginning of our adventure in the sports industry, we have focused on solidly building partnerships and business relationships with our customers.

Logistics center in the Beskids

The company's location was chosen not by accident - in southern Poland, in the heart of the Beskid Mountains. At the same time, it is in close proximity to the Silesian agglomeration, Cracow and the national border with the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The strategic location of our company makes it possible to take full advantage of the extensive network of roads, motorways and logistics networks, which contributes directly to an efficient distribution channel. The company is headquartered in a modern facility, an office building with an area of 2500㎡ and a warehouse building with an area of over 5000㎡, which gives a total usable area of over 7500㎡. The facility is suitable for lorry access.

Our own brand

Viking is a brand created by LARIX in 1996. From the very beginning, we have focused on selecting the right materials of the highest quality and design in line with the latest trends in sports fashion. This combination has made hundreds of thousands of people fall in love with our highly comfortable and functional products, and customer satisfaction with our brand has transformed into ever-increasing improvements in manufacturing technology.

Company history

Sport has always accompanied our lives. Since childhood there was football, cycling, swimming, then mountain hiking and skiing. No wonder then that during the political transformation in Poland at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s, entering our adult life, we decided to start a business in the sports industry. Since then, our small, family-owned business has grown significantly and continues to operate uninterruptedly to this day, being an important supplier of sporting goods on the Polish market.
