The pressure to find a home in Skellefteå is more intense than it has been for a quite a while – for those who have some extra space, there are opportunities to help relieve the housing shortage. Let’s visit with the Lundmark family, who have quite a lot of experience in letting. “It has really given us much pleasure over the years, along with really great new contacts with people,” reports Lennart Lundmark.
In Skellefteå, a new industrial era is taking place. The region has a long tradition of entrepreneurship stemming from its rich natural resources and related business opportunities. As a result, the city is home to several successful companies in industries including renewable energy, sustainable metals and minerals, and sustainable building and forestry. With a booming industry, the unemployment rate is low, the job options are wide-ranging, and the labor market is highly attractive. What was already a remarkably innovative business region with an array of well-respected industry leaders, has now evolved even more since the establishment of one of Northvolt’s gigafactories for battery production, Northvolt Ett. More than 3000 job opportunities are created due to Northvolt and another 7-10 000 are expected related to other businesses establishments and the increased need for services. Skellefteå's economy is based on a large private sector, with Boliden and Martinssons being two of the largest private employers, and Northvolt Ett now commencing operations and currently employing more than 500 people, representing 56 nationalities. Building your career in Skellefteå during these exciting times means being part of creating a more sustainable future and enjoying an unmatched quality of life while you do it.
Everything points to Skellefteå becoming one of Sweden’s leading growth zones in the 2020s. Several business start-ups with a focus on sustainability and an increasingly strong trend in which people see the benefits of medium-sized cities are two reasons why the city’s investment climate is better than it has been in a century.
In Skellefteå, it’s always been a well-known fact that the soil of Kusmark is ideal for growing top-notch potatoes. The village’s proximity to the municipal seat, combined with its particularly enterprising residents, has also created an unusually fertile business environment for small business owners. But Kusmark’s most successful export must still be attributed to the Lindholm and Arvidsson families.
