Hisingen- an island with a thrilling story.

In the 1960s Göteborg was thriving due to a strong shipping industry, generated jobs in the area and making the economy booming. Göteborg was one of the strongest competitors in Europe, and we almost got blinded by our own success. But suddenly the global development caught up and passed us. There were severe cut-backs and a whole business was on the verge of disaster. The depression was a fact.

Now, more than three decades later, the situation is totally different. The empty, almost ghost-like dockyards have new tenants, cutting-edge hi-tech companies are established, and we are seeing a new prosperous era arising. We learned our lesson, we know that if we don’t develop and are prone to change, we too will be history. Creating and realising new ideas are not only survival skills, it’s in our backbone.



Hisland is a compound of Hisingen and island (pronounced Highland). It reflects a strong industrial heritage, the pro-activity of the area and the multi-cultural environment that Hisingen is. History is now and so is Hisland.

Hisland Solutions offers services that strengthen businesses with the latest technology, new innovations and creative solutions. We are a strong international team of experts that enable the technique behind smart products and services within software and electronics. In 2018 Hisland Solutions won Dagens Industry "Årets Gasell" a prestigious prize that is awarded the fastest growing companies in the region. We couldn’t be prouder of everyone who made this happen. We continue to grow our family, always with our roots firmly planted in Hisingen.

With Hisland we create is a platform where dreams and ideas can flourish and grow. All in the name of contributing to a better world.



We learned from history that if we don’t evolve, we won’t survive. In life as well as business, the only constant thing is change and we need to be on our toes. New challenges arise as the techniques evolve and this time we will lead. We are looking for you, proactive, bold and innovative Hislander.
