Taitonetti has grown from a small gaming cafe into the leading online store for used computers and an international company in 18 years. Taitonetti is the #1 refurbisher and seller of used computers in Finland, with a turnover approaching 10 million euros in the last fiscal year. Saari Partners joins as the majority owner while the current management will continue with a significant minory share. The shared goal is to further internationalization, marketing, and online store development.
“Taitonetti operates at the core of the circular economy, which is both a growing market and a sector we want to support. Taitonetti convinced us with its quality, team, and courage, which can be seen, for example, in the well-started internationalization,” says Mikael Lönnroth from Saari Partners. “With our team’s strengths, we can support Taitonetti on its next growth journey and together build a strong international pioneer,” adds Mikael.
Taitonetti’s growth is well supported by prevailing megatrends. The market is in transition, and the demand for used electronics is expected to grow strongly in the coming years. Sustainability increasingly drives consumption decisions, and the general economic situation is furthers the need for alternative solutions. E-waste is one of the fastest-growing types of waste in the EU, which puts pressure on the recycling of electronics and components. In addition, there is a shortage of components in the market. The goal is strong growth both domestically and internationally, especially in the Nordic countries. “Our strong, committed team, together with Saari team’s strong brand and online store expertise, will be a great combination,” says Mikko from Taitonetti Oy. “We want to support sustainable consumption,” continues Mikko, adding that “our values have been at the core of our operations from the beginning.
