Knivsta - a young municipality with a long history

Knivsta is a municipality close to the countryside, half way between the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, and the university city of Uppsala. Thanks to close cooperation between the local authorities, business life and voluntary organisations, and thanks to its enthusiastic inhabitants, the municipality has built up a stimulating environment to live and work in.

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. Half of the country’s research and development capacity is in this region.

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.
