Topi keittiöt was founded in 1939 by Toivo Ojala. Before founding the company Toivo had worked as a carpenter and when the company started he had only a few of his sons working for the company. At first they made just tables and chairs but in the 1950’s they started to make kitchen furniture. The company started growing and nowadays Topi is the third largest kitchen furniture company in Finland. They employ about 150 people and they have over 30 stores all around Finland.
