Our history

Few companies have Nokia’s storied capacity for transforming, developing new technologies and adapting to shifts in market conditions.

From its beginning in 1865 as a single paper mill operation, Nokia has found and nurtured success in several sectors over the years, including cable, mobile devices, paper products, rubber boots and tires, and telecommunications infrastructure equipment.

Nokia’s sector-by-sector success over the years has mirrored its geographical rise: from a Finnish-focused company until the 1980s with a growing Nordic and European presence; to a bona fide European company in the early 1990s; and onto a truly global company from the mid-1990s onward. With the acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent in 2016, we further deepen and widen our global reach.

Nokia has been producing telecommunications equipment since the 1880s – almost since telephony began.

We work in the following sectors

  • Electronics
  • IT
  • Retail
  • Telecommunications
