1995 - Founding of the Company

In 1994, Asko Strömberg worked as a department engineer in a company manufacturing metal parts. With over 30 years of work experience, he had built enough confidence in his skills to decide to become an entrepreneur. The idea was to purchase a punch press and a brake press to start producing metal parts as subcontractor, with quick and reliable delivery times for customers. He convinced his coworker Jari Relavuo to become a partner. Jari remains involved in the operation to this day. Pirjo Strömberg joined as a third partner, taking care of the company’s official founding and bookkeeping. The company was named Stremet Oy, utilizing the surnames of the partners. Operations started in a 400-square-meter rented space.
