At Viking, we know that inspiring your students to succeed and delivering a first class educational experience is your priority. Ours is delivering you the products and services you need to facilitate that. We understand running a school or college is like running a business, with strains on resources, budgetary challenges and administrative complexities in procuring supplies. With that in mind, we offer an extensive product range and essential services that make shopping with Viking even more convenient and efficient, allowing you to focus on educating the leaders of tomorrow, instead of the complexities of managing an institution.

Our enormous range covers everything you need in a learning environment such as paper, ink cartridges and printers, as well as office stationery and office chairs. Additionally, we also offer cleaning and catering equipment including janitorial supplies, coffee machines and branded drinks, so that your staffroom is always fully stocked. In 2019, we also extended our assortment with business services & solutions to offer a comprehensive approach that caters to your business needs, such as efficient printing and binding solutions for educational settings.
