Rapid growth in eye health for 45 years – Thousands of spectacle lenses and millions of eye care products are manufactured in Lieto every year.

Finnsusp Oy, a family-owned company based in Lieto, continues to grow significantly, and has doubled its turnover in four years and expanded to the US market and e-commerce. The vision of the company, which turned 45 in August 2023, is to bring the joy of seeing and well-being to everyday life. 

Finnsusp Oy, which manufactures millions of bottles of contact lens care solutions and eye care products around the world, has expanded to the US market with its dry eye products. Cooperation with a local distributor has got off to a good start and the world’s largest dry eye product market has gained a good foothold. In spring 2023, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted an official inspection at the Finnsusp factory in Lieto, Finland, which enables the sale of over-the-counter medicinal products on the US market. “We are proud and grateful for the results of the first GMP inspection in our history and the good development suggestions we received during the inspection. Our personnel have done a huge amount of development work to exceed the requirements of strictly regulated sterile production,” says Riikka Järvinen, CEO of Finnsusp Oy

“The global demand for dry eye products continues to grow, and we have succeeded in developing a product line that treats dry eye symptoms at all levels, including unique emulsion products manufactured with microemulsion technology, which received a patent in summer 2023,” says Markus Tenovuo, Sales Director at Finnsusp Oy. “We have signed several partnership agreements with international pharmaceutical companies on the distribution of our dry eye products, and we are currently investing in increasing our production capacity and personnel,” Tenovuo continues. 

To celebrate the company’s 45th anniversary, the renewing company has also launched an online store for spectacle lenses in Finland. “Competition in the optical industry in Finland is very fierce, and it is difficult for a small Finnish family business to comprehensively access the lens selections of large chains,” says Tomi Korhonen, Sales Director of Optics at Finnsusp Oy. “We want to enable consumers to purchase spectacle lenses manufactured in Finland through retailers and online stores.” The spectacle lenses are sold in dozens of optician stores throughout the country, and spectacle lenses developed for golfers by the company can also be found in Instrumentarium’s selection. 

Products developed and manufactured by Finnsusp Oy (Piiloset) are sold in more than 30 countries around the world. The company’s turnover is already almost 10 million euros. Net sales have doubled profitably over the past four years.
