Industries and businesses are attracted to Knivsta mainly because of its favourable location at the centre of a region, where one third of the population of Sweden live. It takes only half an hour to reach Stockholm and ten minutes to Uppsala, one of Sweden’s oldest and most famous university cities. A major international airport, Arlanda, is only 7 minutes away.
Half of the country’s research and development capacity is in this region.
Being close to the university city of Uppsala and other educational centres in the region, Knivsta has a very well-educated population.
Knivsta welcomes new businesses
We try as far as possible to facilitate applications for building permits, for example, and in many other ways help new companies to establish themselves in Knivsta.
Its attractive living environment has encouraged people who have moved here to settle permanently. However, the local competition for employment is at a low level. 70 per cent of the people who live in Knivsta commute to work outside the municipality. This means that it is easy for new employers to recruit well-educated personnel.
