With more than 270 years in the service of the Swedish steel industry the institution of Jernkontoret has striven to safeguard the steel industry’s interests through working for the best possible preconditions for operations throughout Sweden
In the first half of the 18th century, Sweden was the largest iron exporter in the world. By the end of the 1730’s the export of iron accounted for three-quarters of the total value of Swedish exports. On the 29th December 1747, King Fredrik I gave his sanction to Jernkontoret by way of a royal decree.
