The history of Holmen goes back more than 400 years. Only a small number of Swedish companies can match the Group in this respect.

Like many other old companies in Sweden, Holmen has its roots in businesses that were founded on assets initially of water and ore, followed by forests. Holmen's history began in the 17th century in Norrköping, with the building of an arms factory on the island of Kvarnholmen in the River Motala. Iggesund's history can also be traced back to the same century, when the Östanå Paper Mill became the first industrial facility in the region. The mid-1700s saw the birth of what was eventually to become MoDo, when the Mo water-powered sawmill in Söderåfors started operation.
