Cluster Initiative

“A business cluster is a geographical concentration of interconnected businesses, suppliers and associated institutions in a particular field. Clusters are considered to increase the productivity with which companies can compete, nationally and globally.” (Wikipedia)


“To add value and increase the impact of existing clusters we have organised a development activity around them. This venture is called the Cluster Initiative.” (Karin Nilsson, Manager, Association of Heavy Vehicles)



The Heavy Vehicle Cluster is a cornerstone in Southern Sweden’s economy and has great significance for regional employment.


The automotive industry in our region is, according to analysis presented in the spring of 2011 very competitive. (Regional study of Kronoberg by Grufman Reje Management). These vehicles have a high value adding effect and businesses are profitable.


The public leadership in the region has confirmed the importance of the heavy vehicles industry for developed employment and welfare. There is a committed leadership of the national government leaders for development of innovation, competitiveness and employment in the industry.


A stimulating environment is created through collaboration between businesses, public actors and research and development leaders.
