Umeå is a beautiful city that is constantly growing. Here is room to find your own place, because each district has its own character.

Umeå - The city of birches is a city to grow in

In Umeå you will find both beautiful old buildings and modern neighborhoods. The city has an expanded business community, where close cooperation between the municipality, business and the university lays a good foundation for continued strong development. The large availability of well-educated labor and research resources attracts engineering companies that have made environmental investments in Umeå in recent years.

The city is known for its creative climate, which creates the rich cultural life that exists here - with many committed associations. The many bikes are a sign that it is close to most things, even to other people. Maybe that's why both crime and ill health are at a low level.

The rest of the world is never far away either: Umeå Airport, the Botniabanan, the new ring road and an expanded port make Umeå a northern logistics center.

Holmen in Umeå

The growing forest is the basis of our business. We are part of the ecocycle from seedling to plank, where the raw material is refined into everything from wood for climate-smart buildings to renewable packaging, magazines and books. We also produce our own renewable energy from hydro and wind power. With a clear focus on sustainability in all aspects, Holmen contributes to a brighter future.
