Photographer's Note

Factory views are hardly mainstream of TE, but I'd like to show this on as it is (kind of) topical.
In September it was announced that mobile phone business of Nokia company will be sold to Microsoft. Today the decision got the final approval on the shareholders' meeting.

On a big picture this is just one phase of continuous renewal of the company. In 1868 a paper mill was established on a small town of Nokia by the Nokianvirta river. Throughout years also other factories were established in the town of Nokia. Today none of these are part of Nokia company anymore, but they are still operational on different ownership. This picture shows tissue paper factory and hydroelectric power plant. Other products that are still manufactured in the neighbourhood, and were once part of Nokia's product portfolio, include floors, rubber boots and tyres.
