History

We commenced business operations in Helsinki, Finland in 2005 and have since then steadily grown in terms of revenue by continuously expanding our geographic presence and customer base. As a result of our geographic expansion in Europe, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, we have tested and refined our product portfolio and increased our operational efficiency.
