History

The town of Sandviken was founded in 1862 by Göran Fredrik Göransson who built an ironworks along the sandy bay on the northern shore of the lake Storsjön. Four years earlier Göransson had pioneered the application of the Bessemer process on an industrial scale at Högbo Bruk, which lies to the north of present day Sandviken.

The steel from the ironworks gave the company a prominent position and placed Sandviken (Sandvik AB) on the world map. Abreast of the success of the company, the town also expanded. Today Sandviken is a modern town with a full range of private and public sector services.
