Trade and industry / Åmål


Lakeside industrial facilities


Technical colleges attract youths to the industry

Åmål has a long and genuine industrial tradition. Here you’ll find industrial businesses that develop and manufacture their own products. There are also companies here that have solid experience as suppliers of systems, subsystems and components.

What distinguishes the trade and industry here is the great number of diverse small industrial businesses that together make up a strong cluster. Their specialty lies above all with cutting applications in different forms. You’ll also find tool makers here, and businesses that are active in the field of maintenance and service.

Åmål works closely together with its neighbouring municipality of Säffle. Amongst others, they run a technical college together, where young people are trained in the areas of expertise that are required by businesses, both locally as well as regionally.
