Title: Vulnerability in Small Single Industry Towns in Sweden - A Case Study of Hofors

Municipality

Svenska: Små och sårbara industriorter i Sverige - en fallstudie om Hofors Kommun

Subject: Business Administration

Keywords: Business Climate, Network, Collaboration, Single Industry Towns

Background: There is a dependency situation between the industry and the municipality. This

makes Hofors municipality vulnerable. The industry Ovako Steel is the biggest employer in the

municipality and is therefore very important to Hofors. If a place have a good business climate it

is easier for employment opportunities, good ideas and entrepreneurship to grow easily. There is

a lot that a municipality can do in order to enhance the business climate.

Purpose: The purpose of this research is to identify to what extent a good business climate can

impact on the vulnerability situation for small single industry towns in Sweden.

Method: Case study with semi-structured interviews and secondary data.

Conclusion: Based on our empirical study a good business climate could be seen as a useful

strategy for small and vulnerable single industry towns in Sweden. By developing a good

business climate, the more attractive it is for entrepreneurs to start their businesses and broaden

the business community. Municipalities with a good business climate is also a place where it

easier to start new work opportunities in times of reductions in the industry.

Being dependent on one industry does not have to imply only negative effects. In our empirical

study of Hofors situation the collaboration between the network Entré Hofors and the industry

Ovako Steel is reciprocally and positive. The general implication for Hofors and other small

vulnerable single industry towns seems to be the importance of changing the attitudes towards

entrepreneurship as well as the ability to create new work opportunities in times when the

industry needs to cut down or the worst situation possible; closing down the whole industry.
