The Probot strategy

Better Probotics

Our strategy, “Better probotics” aims at the comprehensive development of our company’s activities and will be implemented in phases in the period 2022–2025.


Our mission

We integrate robotics into work communities.

We strongly believe that there is work for humans and work for robots. Allocating heavy, dangerous, dirty and repetitive tasks to robots enables people to focus on more humane work that involves creativity. Companies make full use of their resources when robots operate as tools alongside people, and this also has a positive effect on employee well-being.

Our vision

We are a pioneer in robotics in Finland.

Our team has extensive competence and strong experience from various fields of industry. Thanks to our curiosity and bravery, we’ve been able to participate in challenging EU projects, get involved in a Europe-wide network and work together with the tops of our industry. Our customer projects enable us to make further use of these skills, and our team gets to further develop their competence.

Our values

We wish that all our operations convey our values, as they genuinely reflect what we are.

Customer-driven approach

We wish to provide our customers with optimal solutions and reap success together. We serve as an expert partner to our customers.


You can trust our word. With our northern Finnish, honest and upright approach, we deliver what we promise.

Constant development

We aim at true excellence. We constantly develop our activities and competence. We train new employees into specialists.

Caring for others

A good team spirit, collaboration, learning and satisfied customers are essential to us. Our activities will increasingly reflect responsibility and sustainable development.

Once upon a time…

All credible stories start with a dark and stormy night or in someone’s garage, right? Well, that’s also true for us. The Probot saga has been going on for nearly two decades by now.

It all began in the Tikanmäki brothers’ garage in 2006, when Matti and Antti were still working as researchers at the University of Oulu. The brothers realised that there was a need for a link between the world of research and industry for disseminating information. The company continues to be involved in many development projects today, including EU projects, and collaborates with various research institutes.

But how did this company take the leap from a garage to a proper office space in Metsokangas, Oulu? And how did a handful of employees grow into a company that employs around twenty people today despite the coronavirus crisis?

Did you know that…

Official introductions often leave out many funny stories. For the sake of fairness, we’ll also share some insider knowledge with you so you’ll find it easier to get an idea of our team!


Number of degrees in our team

Our team has extensive competence in robotics and automation, but did you know we also employ a physicist, a gardener, a life coach and a physical therapist?

And of course, one bass player.


Total pets owned by our team

Our team members love their pets! We have a total of 16 pets among us. They include some furry and not-so-furry friends, from a mongrel to a Coton de Tuléar and from a domestic shorthair to a Bengal cat. And of course our #BadProbotDog!


Cups of coffee we drink over the week

We’ve known for pouring a steaming cup of the tastiest coffee for anyone coming to our office, including our team and any guests. No wonder our team are often craving a cup!
