Västerås is today Sweden's fifth largest urban area with a population of more than 110,000 people. So how did little Västerås become so big? The main reason is the many job opportunities available in the city. ABB and Nordiska Metall are probably the companies with the biggest presence in the city, but it was also in Västerås that both H&M and ICA were founded. While ABB is today one of the city's largest employers, the IT electronics and digital design industries have emerged in the city.
