Nokia's history starts in 1865 when mining engineer Fredrik Idestam established
a groundwood pulp million the banks of the Tammerkoski rapids in the town of Tampere,
in southwestern Finland, and started manufacturing paper.In 1868, Idestam built a second
mill near the town of Nokia, fifteen kilometers (nine miles) west of Tampere by the
Nokianvirta river, which had better resources for hydropower production. In 1871,
Idestam, with the help of his close friend statesman Leo Mechelin, renamed and
transformed his firm into a share company, thereby founding the Nokia Company, the
name it is still known by today.
The name of the town, Nokia, originated from the river which flowed through
the town. The river itself, Nokianvirta, was named after the archaic Finnish word
originally meaning a small, dark-furred animal that lived on the banks of the Nokianvirta
river. In modern Finnish, noki means soot and nokia is its inflected plural, although this
form of the word is rarely if ever used. The old word, nois (pl. nokia) or nokinäätä ("soot
marten"), meant sable. After sable was hunted to extinction in Finland, the word was
applied to any dark-furred animal of the genus Martes, such as the pine marten, which are
found in the area to this day.

The History of
How it all began – the birth of Nokia

 The history of Nokia goes back to 1865. That was when Fredrik Idestam built a
wood pulp mill on the banks of the Tammerkoski rapids, in southern Finland. A
few years later, he built a second mill by the Nokianvirta River – the place that
gave Nokia its name.
 A mining engineer by trade, Idestam brought a new, cheaper paper manufacturing
process to Finland from Germany.
 Nokia Ab added electricity generation to its business activities in 1902

Who was Fredrik Idestam?

A mining engineer by trade, Idestam brought a new, cheaper paper manufacturing process
to Finland from Germany.
It was a great success. Idestam’s invention won a bronze medal at the Paris World
Exposition in 1867, and he is considered to be the father of Finland’s paper industry.

Marketing principles of NOKIA

There are many priorities within a business, but in a marketing

orientated company like Nokia, many of the following principles will
be high on the agenda:
1. Customer satisfaction: Market research must be used to find out
whether customers' expectations are being met by current products
or services.

2. Customer perception: this is based on the images consumers have

of the organization and its products, this can be based on; value
for money, product quality, fashion and product reliability.

3. Customer needs and expectations: This is anticipating future

trends and forecasting for future sales. This is vital to any
organization if they wish to keep their entire current market
share and develop more.

4. Generating income or profit: This principle clearly states that

the need of the organization is to be profitable enough to
generate income for growth and to satisfy stakeholders in the
business. Although satisfying the customer is a big part of a
companies plans they also need to take into account their own
needs, such as:

5. Making satisfactory progress: Organizations need to make sure

that their product is developing along with the market, if a
product is developing well, then income should increase, if not
then the marketing strategy should be revised.

6. Be aware of the environment: An organization should always know

what is happening within their designated market, if it is
changing, saturation, technological advances, slowing down or
rapidly growing, being up to date on this is essential for
companies to survive.
