Our business concept


Hammarviken Företagsutveckling was founded in the early 2000’s by Mona and Mats Rydhede. The Rydhede’s novel business concept was to consolidate business and real estate investment under a single umbrella group. In the years since our founding, our corporate holdings have grown and our internal expertise has become ever more expansive. We currently invest in companies both large and small, but all of which share a common ambition – to develop their businesses.


Core values


Our key words represent Hammarviken’s core values, and are the starting point for all our business relationships. These 4 cornerstones, combined our with comprehensive business expertise, are the rock-solid foundation on which we have built stable, long-term relationships, and ensure both our own success and that of the companies we serve. Our business partners are safe in the knowledge that Hammarviken encourages an open dialogue and honest cooperation, and that all our actions are governed by a spirit of mutual respect. We appreciate the honest and open exchange of ideas, and want those we work with to be able to express their opinions – though never at the expense of others.
