Key factors for successfull establishments

Strategic location and a good infrastructure

Värmland has an ideal location in between Stockholm and Oslo, with easy access to both markets. It’s easy to reach Värmland by car, train or plane, and the harbours on Lake Vänern allow for bulk cargo to be shipped around the world. Other cargo can easily be transported by truck or train on the extensive road and railway networks.

Developable land

One of Värmland’s main advantages is the availability of undeveloped land for both establishing and expanding operations. There is plenty of vacant space near roads, harbours, and cargo railway junctions.

Inexpensive, green electricity

If you’re seeking a sustainable and green profile, production in Värmland is exceptionally favorable as the electricity is both inexpensive and produced with renewable energy sources.
