Doofor named “Achiever 2021” and “Growth Company 2022” by Kauppalehti


Doofor is honored to have received two certificates of excellence by Kauppalehti, Finland’s largest business magazine. Whereas the “Achiever 2021” badge was given in recognition of Doofor’s overall business operations, stable growth, and sound financial structure and profitability, the recent “Growth Company 2020” certificate was awarded with an emphasis on Doofor’s strong growth over the past three years.

Recurring Achiever

Kauppalehti’s “Achiever” certificate serves to benchmark a company’s success by rating its financial performance with respect to several key categories, including skillful management, dedicated personnel, efficient processes, and customer understanding. Only 2 percent of Finnish limited liability companies are able to attain this honour, which is awarded for companies that have received at least 50 points in Alma Talent’s Achievers-grading for five years in a row.

Doofor has been a recipient of the “Achiever” certificate for ten consecutive years since 2012. The conferment of the “Achiever” award shows that in terms of financial capacities, Doofor is included among both the top companies in Finland as well as among its peers in the industry.

Growth amidst gloom

Meanwhile, Kauppalehti’s “Growth Company” certificate is given to those Finnish companies that have demonstrated clear growth in their business in the past three years. Significant revenue growth means that the company’s annual revenue growth has exceeded the industry average by at least 10 percent.

In the backdrop of global economic impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this recognition bestowed on the selected Finnish companies is particularly remarkable — since in times of economic downturn, it is often staffing and hiring that bear the brunt of corporate savings. In light of this, Kauppalehti has particularly looked into companies’ ability to renew and innovate, adapt to difficult times, and ensure adequate human resources in crisis and change management.

Doofor is an innovative Finnish company specialized in the design and manufacture of hydraulic rock drills based on advanced Nordic drilling technology. With an export rate of over 90%, the company has been supplying to over 40 countries on five different continents since 1993. The company pins its success on maintaining a wide global partnership and supplier network and on delivering high-quality and reliable rock drill products to customers all over the world. Kauppalehti is Finland’s leading independent business media and its annual listings are closely followed by the business community.

“We are extremely happy and proud to receive these two prestigious awards by Kauppalehti and to be recognized as among the best in our field. The fact that we have obtained these two awards within a span of six months is particularly gratifying and underscores our continuous achievements since our inception in 1993. I would like to express my utmost gratitude for our customers, suppliers and staff that have collectively contributed to our sustainable growth,”
