About Nokian

Test winning performance winter tyres.

Based in Nokia in Finland we employ over 4000 employees worldwide and are proud to have the world’s only permanent winter tyre testing facility. We can trace our company history back as far as 1856 with tyre production starting back in 1932.

A merger of three businesses in 1967 formed the Nokian Corporation and we continue to invest heavily in research and development to continue to develop tyres that offer exceptional performance in winter conditions.

Research & Development


The main task of the R&D department is to support and enhance the company’s status as the manufacturer of the world’s best winter and forestry tyres.

Our core Research & Development principle has remained constant for over 80 years, simply put, this is to develop the best tyres for those consumers driving in northern conditions, who demand safety and durability from their tyres in all circumstances.

Development is based on the principle of sustainable safety, which states that the safety properties of a tyre should remain intact, even as the tyre wears.

At Nokian Tyres can trace our history back into the mid 1860’s when the original company was established as a wood pulp business. Car tyre production started back in the 1930’s and the Hakkapeliitta brand name was established a few years later.

At one time Nokian was manufacturing tyres under the brand name Nokia as part of the Nokia Corporation, however it was split out from the Nokia Corporation when Nokian Tyres Limited was created in 1988 as a joint venture company.

Today we employ over 4,000 staff worldwide and continually strive to deliver ever improving products.
