Kungsleden cooperates with ABB, Västerås Municipality and other prominent companies at Finnslätten to develop the area and create an attractive environment with a wide range of services that can attract additional innovative businesses and talent as well as research and education.
“These new leases with world-leading high-tech companies are exactly in line with the investment we are making at Finnslätten and strengthen the area’s attractiveness. Increasing the service offering in the area is also a high priority and IF Friskis&Svettis will be a welcome contribution,” says Mats Eriksson, Regional Manager Mälardalen at Kungsleden.
Both Northvolt and SGS DNA have decided to invest long-term in Finnslätten. Northvolt is currently constructing a production facility – Northvolt Lab – adjacent to the new premises that the company now leases from Kungsleden. SGS DNA, a leader in vitro diagnostics and part of the Qiagen international Group, is moving its operations from Köping to Västerås.
Northvolt leases space in Building 391 within the property Effekten 2 and SGS DNA leases space in Building 357 in the property Finnslätten 1. In the latter, a modernisation project is underway which aims, among other things, to adapt the building to offices, a school, industrial production and areas to improve the offering of services at Finnslätten.
The service offering at Finnslätten is being continuously strengthened and Kungsleden is currently constructing a training facility in building 391 in the property Effekten 2 on behalf of IF Friskis&Svettis.
Finnslätten is located just north of Västerås city centre with close proximity to the E18 and number 56 highways. A number of world-leading international companies are based in the area, including ABB, Bombardier, Westinghouse, Northvolt, Quintus Technology, AA-logistics, Enics, Strukton and AQ-group. Kungsleden is the largest property owner in the area with 237,000 sq.m. Västerås is located 100 km west of Stockholm and is Sweden’s sixth largest city with approximately 153,000 inhabitants.
