The Group’s mission is to offer an extensive range of quality products at affordable prices. Thanks to professional and skilled personnel, a well-organised purchasing organisation and an efficient logistics system, the Group's network of stores is able to offer customers a wide range of both Finnish and international brand products.
The Tokmanni Group began with Okman Oy, founded by brothers Kyösti and Kari Kakkonen in 1989.
The ownership structure changed in October 2004 when funds managed by private equity investor CapMan became Tokmanni’s major shareholder. The change in ownership structure has made it possible to pursue a strong growth strategy. The Group acquired the Vapaa Valinta discount-store chain (35 stores) in October 2004 and the large Milleri discount store in Kylmäkoski in June 2006. In November 2006, Tokmanni Oy acquired the Säästökuoppa chain (4 stores) in the Oulu region. The most important acquisition to date was in January 2006, when Tokmanni acquired the entire share capital of Tarjousmaxi Oy (33 stores) and the business assets of Robinhood (12 stores). The most recent store acquisition was in November 2007, when the 10-store Säästöpörssi chain, based in southern Finland, was acquired.
In July 2012 Nordic Capital acquired 100 % of Tokmanni’s shares.
