The seafront location of Gävle, between Gavleån (Gavle river) and Testeboån (Testebo river), is something that has always meant a lot to Gävle residents and businesses. This is also something we now are developing more than ever, which can be seen in investments in housing and culture in the historic docklands of Gävle Strand at the outflow of Gavleån into the sea. Here grows a unique residential waterfront, minutes from Gävle central and the main square.

Hofors is the small municipality that has got almost everything. And what we do not have here, we have it near by. In our municipality you can live a rich life and it is not expensive to settle down here. Hofors is located in the west of the district Gästrikland 50 kilometres from Gävle and 30 kilometres from Falun. Hofors will probably always be associated with iron and steel.

Today we have our modern industrial plant, Ovako, but we can look back upon two thousand years of handling iron. Today you can easily tell that we have that background because it really characterizes our trade and industrial life. Nowadays, though, we have committed ourselves to developing a diversified trade and industry in our community.
