The largest companies in Gothenburg 2022

28 June 2022
The Gothenburg region is home to a broad and multifaceted business environment. Some of the world's leading companies within their sectors are headquartered in the region. Some of these have become so large that they are classified as multinational companies. But who are they? Here are the largest companies in the Gothenburg region.

A company's size can be measured in several different ways. Perhaps the most common is to start from the number of employees, but to supplement the picture, both turnover and market value are relevant indicators. Here are the largest companies in the Gothenburg region based on these different assessment criteria.

The largest companies by employees

The majority of the largest companies in the Gothenburg region engage in research and development at a world-leading level. Volvo Cars, with its development and production in Torslanda, is the single largest employer in the private sector in the Gothenburg region with over 16,000 employees. Volvo Group, if you put the different parts together has over 12,300 employees in the Gothenburg region.
