The 100-year-old Vickery brand was created by Vickery’s Limited (now a part of Kadant U.K. Limited).
The company was started by the late Fredrick William Vickery, a gifted inventor and engineer. Vickery’s was dedicated to research and development and over the years was granted 139 patents for innovative designs related to machinery in the paper production process and other industries. Most notably, in 1931, the company launched the first composite doctor blade. The innovation of this initial composite material set the scene for the current state-of-the-art, advanced-technology doctor blades that now provide cutting-edge, best-practice cleaning solutions in a diverse range of worldwide industrial processes.

Kadant U.K. Limited continues the development and innovation today that established Vickery’s Limited as a market leader.
