NOKIA CRISIS IS a big thing in Finland. In Salo, it is everything.
Eight years ago, the company had 5000 own employees and 1000 temporary employees working for the Salo site, more than 10% of city inhabitants —newborns and grandmothers included. If one counts in all subcontractors and Nokia dependent businesses, the number becomes even more staggering.
At 2012, Nokia announced the shutting down of Salo factory. Three years later, all business units were closed down due to acquisition of Microsoft. In June 2016, Microsoft announced that it is going to stop mobile phone production in Finland.
How come? What now? Then what? Answers are mysteries. This is just an introduction.
Work is in progress.
