Heritage 1965 - Billnäs 1122
Billnäs Bruk, originally founded in 1641 by Carl Billsten while Finland, was under Swedish rule. It was destroyed in 1659 during taxation protests, then again at the start of the 18th century during Russian Military occupation. By 1723, it was back up and running under the ownership of the Hisinger family and grew until it was employing over one thousand people by 1915!
