INDUSTRY

Industry dominates in Lund´s economy. Calculated in relative employment, Lund is the most industrial municipality in Rogaland. The largest concern is the window manufacturer Johs. Rasmussen A/S with about 430 employees (in Lund) and approximately 700 employees inclusive other locations in Norway.

Another small firm that has prospered lately, is the Moen Bjøllefabrikk, that used to be a small forging company. However, the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics was a turning point for the firm, making thousands of cow-bells for the audience there. In spite of this, agriculture is still important and a number of private and public service industries have also provided employment for a growing number of local people.
