Fiskars, and how it all began!
Way back in 1649 a Dutch merchant was offered a charter for establishing a blast furnace and forging operation in a small village in Finland, Fiskars Bruk, which is approximately 100 km west of Helsinki and from then there has been no looking back!
The phenomenal rise of Fiskars Corporation
Initially, Fiskars was engaged in making nails, hoes, wire, and metal reinforced wheels using wrought iron.
With an acceleration of industrial and economic development in Europe, Fiskars used the opportunity and has been catapulted to the forefront of innovation with their products expanding from knifeworks to other areas such as agricultural machinery, household utensils, steam engines, candlesticks, forks, and scissors and a lot more and rose at a phenomenal rate to become a premier steel and ironworks company. Today the name Fiskars is synonymous with their scissors, high quality knives and axes.
Another feather in the cap, Fiskars is one of the first in Europe that manufactured microwave ovens.
And it was in the year 1915 that Fiskars got listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange. A great journey it has been!
