Most of the farmers in the Mellerud municipality run large farms. Many of them have a university college education and a positive attitude towards new technologies. They are open to new business opportunities such as those that wind power generation and the use of organic residual products in order to produce biogas, provide.
The expertise amongst small businesses in the municipality is well-developed, above all where different forms of handicrafts with a link to the agricultural sector are concerned.
In the local industries in Mellerud, we find front-edge competence in the field of the development and production of:
- plastic bottles and cans (Emballator)
- steel/safety doors (Hellbergs Dörrar och Daloc)
- hook lifts and after market systems for lorries (JOAB)
- technical solutions for internal internet hosting within the Bonnier Group (Bonnier Digital).
