We bring industrial manufacturers and small businesses together. We empower the wholesale community. We make buyers' lives easier.

Our story

Droppe was born in 2020 when Johannes Salmisaari & Henrik Helenius left their dorm in California to isolate on Hawaii and noticed at their arrival empty shelves in shops on the island. The lightbulb moment led to a researching the cause behind the wholesale supply shortages: industrial buyers were not able to find direct suppliers. The industrial purchasing needed to move online.

A Finnish technology company was born that would help local production plants and wholesalers with supplies order directly from European manufacturers. Droppe was created with one goal in mind: to bring European equipment manufacturers and industrial buyers closer together.
