Industry & Employment

Vital industry and an entrepreneurial spirit

The Jakobstad region is a multi-faceted and flourishing industrial region. The Jakobstad region is home to Finland’s most multidimensional industry structure. Important industries in the region are: food, metal, paper, machinery&equipment, rubber&plastic, boat, fur, abrasives technology and consultation.

The region’s strength lies in export knowledge, international contacts, proficiency in industrial processing, and a high standard of technical knowledge.

Agriculture has traditionally been important for the region and, thanks to significant specialization in primary production, especially within fur farming, constitutes a vital foundation for the local area.
