The roots of Nokia go back to the year
1865 with the establishment of a forest industry enterprise in
South-Western Finland by mining engineer Fredrik Idestam. Elsewhere,
the year 1898 witnessed the foundation of Finnish Rubber Works
Ltd, and in 1912 Finnish Cable Works began operations. Gradually,
the ownership of these two companies and Nokia began to shift
into hands of just a few owners. Finally in 1967 the three companies
were merged to form Nokia Corporation.
At the beginning of the 1980s, Nokia strengthened
its position in the telecommunications and consumer electronics
markets through the acquisitions of Mobira, Salora, Televa and
Luxor of Sweden. In 1987, Nokia acquired the consumer electronics
operations and part of the component business of the German Standard
Elektrik Lorenz, as well as the French consumer electronics company
Oceanic. In 1987, Nokia also purchased the Swiss cable machinery
In the late 1980s, Nokia became the largest
Scandinavian information technology company through the acquisition
of Ericsson's data systems division. In 1989, Nokia conducted
a significant expansion of its cable industry into Continental
Europe by acquiring the Dutch cable company NKF.
Since the beginning of the 1990's, Nokia
has concentrated on its core business, telecommunications, by
divesting its information technology and basic industry operations.
