The story of Virtasenkauppa began over 70 years ago
Originally, the Virtanen brothers founded a car repair shop that was subsequently converted into an engine machining shop. In the 1960s, the brothers expanded into spare parts sales. Over the decades, the product range grew to finally include tens of thousands of items. Virtasenkauppa’s product range offers everything from incubators and bicycle racks to ultrasonic cleaners and toys. All in all, the assortment includes over 3 million items. Even before the online store was opened, Virtasenkauppa.fi was a forerunner in distance sales. The company engaged in telemarketing before digitalisation had reached a point that allowed full-scale online transactions. Originally, the company made its name as a machining shop that was known for its excellent service across Finland, just like Virtasenkauppa.fi is today.
