In some places, history and tradition converge with modern times in a completely natural way. One such place is Gränsfors. Firmly established along a meandering river, Gränsfors is situated in the north of Hälsingland. Just a short detour off the busy E4 motorway, you will find yourself in a world you thought no longer existed.
A vibrant culture of craft and industry has thrived here for hundreds of years. Mills, stove-builders, breweries, sawmills, forges and much more have been in operation along the river at one time or another. Two of these fine craft-based industries still remain in full operation: Gränsfors Bruk makes its quality axes and Gränsfors Blomkruksfabrik turns out superb flowerpots. Gränsfors is a living place above all, a place where history informs the modern pulse of life.
