We welcome new INPACS Members in Finland
With great pleasure, we are announcing that KARITEAM & FORDERS are the INPACS Associated Members in Finland.
“It is with great excitement that we are joining INPACS, and we are looking forward to contributing to this network and sharing our experiences that we have built in the past decades in our market” said Heidi Poikolainen (CEO of KARITEAM).
While, as family-owned business, thinking in generations and thus ensuring sustainable long-term growth, it is essential for us to rely on the right partners who share a common vision and values.
KARITEAM was founded in 1966 and over decades has built a strong and diversified product and service portfolio – encompassing a large central warehouse, printing house, online store, and storefront – through which customers in entire Finland are supplied with cleaning and hygiene items as well as office stationery. Since 2018, KARITEAM & FORDERS have entered a strategic cooperation in which FORDERS is contributing through a young and very professional sales structure as well as strong e-commerce capabilities. Having established a deep connection between them, both companies are using the full potential of synergies.
“For us, it represents a great opportunity to strengthen our position in our markets by entering in a cooperation with INPACS and to extend customer as well as supplier relations, to sharpen our sustainability approach and digital capabilities.” said Mika Hakkarainen (CEO of FORDERS).
