Company history

Etra was created in 2007 when Teollisuus Etola, TKA Group, Pohjolan Tekniikka, and several local companies merged. ETRA Oy was chosen as a name for the new concept. Your Industrial Partner serves as our slogan. Our stores are called ETRA Megacenters, which describes the comprehensiveness of the range of products and services.

The founder of Etola, August Etholén, worked in the 1930s as the sales director of the Savio rubber factory. Once Nokia rubber factory bought the Savio factory, the whole management team was let go. This was during the Great Depression, so jobs were scarce. Etholén, being a father to six children, had saved some capital for a rainy day, so he decided to employ himself and bought three rubber shops in 1932.

One of the shops was situated in Turku and two in Helsinki. One of the Helsinki stores, Iso Roobertinkatu, is still open today. Some years later, the business grew and Johan August Etholén started producing simple rubber items, such as rubber gloves, in the heart of Helsinki on Aleksanterinkatu.

This was the start of Etola group. Since then, we have grown further and today we employ 1550 people, 70 of them are employed in the Etola Shops.
