Nokia Man­u­fac­tured Pa­per in 1865

Nokia was founded back in 1865 and man­u­fac­tur­ing pa­per was its pri­mary busi­ness. Many years later, it switched to mak­ing rub­ber prod­ucts, tele­graph wire, and other elec­tri­cal ca­ble. Mur­ing the mid­dle of the last cen­tury, it also sup­plied the Fin­nish army with com­mu­ni­ca­tions equip­ment, gas masks, plas­tics, and chem­i­cals. Nokia’s first mo­bile phones were re­leased in the 1980s.
