 Nokia's history starts
in 1865 when mining engineer Fredrik Idestam establisheda 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 secondmill 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 andtransformed his firm into a share company, thereby founding the Nokia Company, thename it is still known by today.
The name of the town, Nokia
, originated from the river which flowed throughthe town. The river itself, Nokianvirta, was named after the archaic Finnish wordoriginally meaning a small, dark-furred animal that lived on the banks of the Nokianvirtariver. In modern Finnish,
means soot and
is its inflected plural, although thisform of the word is rarely if ever used. The old word,
) or 
("sootmarten"), meant sable. After sable was hunted to extinction in Finland, the word wasapplied to any dark-furred animal of the genus
, such as the pine marten, which arefound in the area to this day.
