This also boosts the growth of digital sales in Finland.

“Being awarded with the Key Flag Symbol conveys our responsible way of working and we believe it will increase consumers’ appreciation towards Finnish work both in the domestic and international markets. Purchasing loved Ponsse Collection items from our Online Store creates more jobs in Finland. Moreover, the customers find the Ponsse x Finsket cooperation collection’s items, which also carry the Key Flag Symbol, from our broad sortiment.”
