KAUKAS is described in Lithuanian folklore as a creature that enriches good, harvest and gives wealth from the Cape of Plenty, in the form of a small man.
It was said: “Probably KAUKAS helps him.”
UAB Gikniaus “Kaukas”, which has been operating since 1990, is a family business. It is like a transport with well-lubricated wheels or a properly adjusted mechanism.
In addition to the owner V. Giknius, his wife and two sons work also in the company. Irena manages accounting, Tadas takes care of the production of awnings in Panevėžys, and Martynas is responsible for the activities in the metal workshop. In Šiauliai, the tent branch is headed by Aurimas Barškėtis.
We solve and offer solutions against the wind, rain, and sun with awnings and metal constructions manufactured by Kaukas. Advertising awnings, tents, outdoor cafes. The company also manufactures car frames, restores the geometry of trucks and their trailers after car accidents. Trailer-mounted doors, sliding roofs, and improved amenities.
The Gikniai family thought for a long time about how to name their company. He was looking for a name that would make sense. Like a child born, the name is given once. They decided to give the name “Kaukas”, the creator who cares for the house and wealth, imagined in the form of a human being. He is a symbol of goodness, the bearer of success.
In the yard of the company, there is a wooden sculpture depicting Kaukas. It’s a subtly done job. The author of this work is Adolfas Kartanas, a folk artist from Šeduva.
