The Robertsfors Bruksmuseum is dedicated to the Robertsfors Industrial History.
Edfastmark, the current Robertsfors, has evolved from a smaller mill to a high-tech center.
There have been many owners of Robertsfors mill, some have only been there for a short time and others a little longer, but they have all had ideas they tried to implement with more or less success.
The period leading up to the Kempe era has been characterized by largely the same ideas as the founders Jennings and Finlay.
During this time the mill got a church, the school system was gardualy developed, a railway was built between Robertsfors and Sikeå to take care of the transport of timber.
In other words it was a successful development between the years 1755 – 1898 in Robertsfors.
Under Kempe’s leadership, the property was transformed into a more modern company with processing of various kinds in mechanical workshop, foundry, sulphite factory and more. Agriculture was also developed.
In 1948 when sulphite factory was closed down, ASEA moved into it’s buildings and started manufacturing insulation materials.
Most of the buildings for the mill are still there. The houses are still inhabited and the foundry is working and is up to date.
Other industries in Robertsfors included:
Scandiamant – diamond making
Cerama – a high pressure laboratory
Microverktyg – tools manufacturing
ABB(ASEA) – detail manufacturing
Aluman/Profal – aluminium profiles
