Long-term success and stable growth

Kiilto has been ranked among the most successful companies and the biggest growers in Finland in Kauppalehti’s 2020 listing. The result applies to the entire Kiilto Family Group.

Over the past three years, Kiilto has been one of the two per cent of limited liability companies in Finland that have increased their annual turnover by more than 10 percentage points faster than the average for their main industry category. In 2020, Kiilto’s net sales grew by 32 percent. 

At Kiilto growth is not a momentary sprint. Proof of the long-term success is Kiilto’s position in Kauppalehti’s success rating, both among all Finnish companies and among the best companies in its own industry for the last ten years.
