The Municipality of Norsjö – the heart of Västerbotten’s woodlands

The Municipality of Norsjö offers a peaceful existence with all the advantages of a small town, not far from what the city has to offer. Here in the heart of Västerbotten’s woodlands, options abound in terms of housing, culture, leisure activities and exciting destinations to visit. Norjö is rich in nature with expansive forests and an extensive lake system. Today, a large part of the population is employed in industry. Lumber companies form the base of the well-differentiated industry. Since Norsjö is located at the heart of the mineral-rich Skellefteå field, mining also makes a significant contribution. The Municipality of Norsjö strives to encourage relocation to the area and welcomes new companies!
