Tornio – Twin city and an international meeting place

Tornio has a one-of-a-kind location for businesses and investors. Finland’s busiest land border connects the town to Haparanda in Sweden, and the two towns work closely together in both business and leisure. Kemi-Tornio Airport promotes the development of business and tourism, and in addition to domestic railway transport, Tornio will serve as a rail link to Sweden in the future.

The steel industry, mechanical engineering, commerce and tourism represent the strongest business sectors in Tornio. In recent times, the largest investments have been focused around Outokumpu’s plant, and the biggest LNG terminal in the Nordic countries was built a few years ago. In addition to industry, growth is expected in the energy sector and circular economy.
