The roots of MedKit go all the way back to 2003-2007, when Minna-Åman Toivio and Tuukka Toivio were working in the United Arab Emirates. Tuukka, being an experienced doctor trained in emergency medicine was launching helicopter ambulance operations in Abu Dhabi and Minna working on opening up a large international school in Dubai. During these years, lots of conversations were held about new products in the medical field that Tuukka ran into through his work around the world.
Minna and Tuukka wondered why so many medical products were only available in foreign countries. Why weren’t options in Finland as versatile as they were around the world in other countries? In addition they wondered about why purchasing emergency medical supplies had been made to be so complicated, when technology could have enabled a fast and easy shopping experience through an online shop?
MedKit was established to solve the issues noticed by Minna and Tuukka in the acquiry of emergency medical supplies. MedKit Finland combines three areas of expertise:
Clients of MedKit include but are not limited to healthcare units, the national defence forces of Finland, counties, private companies, public organizations, consumers, hospitals, the police force, sports clubs, border patrol and large clients in the manufacturing field. MedKit has evolved from a supplier of products to a company providing a one-stop shop for your healthcare product needs. We offer a versatile range of products, fast deliveries and yes – most of our products can be purchased in single units.
MedKit’s revenue has increased significanty during the last ten years, seeing hundreds of percents of growth. The company currently has 25 employees and is working towards reaching 12 million euros in revenue during 2020. MedKit’s growth strategy is based on internationalization, improvement and continuous learning.
In the beginning of 2020, the media was flooded with reports of a novel coronavirus, Covid-19, spreading in China. MedKit reacted to the threat of a possible pandemic and worked towards ensuring that the supply chain of essential products was well taken care of and stock sufficient at all times. MedKit was able to acquire significant amounts of products for personal protection and supply them to multiple countries in need.
The number one priority has always been acting responsibly and supplying products to where they are needed – not where the profit is highest. The focus was on answering to national demand in the spring of 2020 by supplying products to the government, ministries and the national defence forces for example. MedKit has, and will continue to help organizations in need by supplying personal protective equipment during the pandemic.
