Wärtsilä celebrating 100 years as a stock-listed company
Wärtsilä went public 100 years ago on 1 September 1915. The market in which Wärtsilä operated was different from today's, as was Wärtsilä’s offering. During its 100 stock-listed years, Wärtsilä has grown from a diversified Finnish enterprise to a global technology leader, which shapes the marine and energy markets.
On 1 September 2015 Nasdaq Helsinki invited Wärtsilä to celebrate its 100 year journey as a stock-listed company. To celebrate this milestone, Wärtsilä was honoured to ring the closing bell of Nasdaq Helsinki together with Fiskars, Nokia and UPM-Kymmene. The closing bell ringing was arranged in connection with Nasdaq Helsinki’s Open House 2015 event held in Helsinki, Finland. The event attracted close to 500 Finnish private investors.
