THE END-AND THE BEGINNING
Hisingen- an island with a thrilling story.
In the 1960s Göteborg was thriving due to a strong shipping industry, generated jobs in the area and making the economy booming. Göteborg was one of the strongest competitors in Europe, and we almost got blinded by our own success. But suddenly the global development caught up and passed us. There were severe cut-backs and a whole business was on the verge of disaster. The depression was a fact.
Now, more than three decades later, the situation is totally different. The empty, almost ghost-like dockyards have new tenants, cutting-edge hi-tech companies are established, and we are seeing a new prosperous era arising. We learned our lesson, we know that if we don’t develop and are prone to change, we too will be history. Creating and realising new ideas are not only survival skills, it’s in our backbone.
WHAT IS HISLAND?
Hisland is a compound of Hisingen and island (pronounced Highland). It reflects a strong industrial heritage, the pro-activity of the area and the multi-cultural environment that Hisingen is. History is now and so is Hisland.

All in the name of contributing to a better world.
