Jorma Orkosalo perusti Keypoint Oy:n 27.3.1991.

The story of Keypoint began on 27 March 1991 in Orkosalo’s garage, where he started to make industrial lasers. Today, Keypoint is a well-established and financially sound photonics company. Curiosity and forward thinking, combined with strong expertise, have been the driving force behind the company’s smart laser therapy devices and 4D radars.

During his long career, one of Jorma Orkosalo’s biggest dreams came true: Keypoint’s story as a family-owned business continued. The company was handed over to the next generation in 2015, with Jorma’s daughter Silva Orkosalo-Paananen taking over as Keypoint’s Managing Director. In the next few years, the family business aims to become a leading specialist in the international photonics markets.
