Domsjö Fabriker as employer

Domsjö Fabriker has gone through a mighty change. The traditional pulp mill has evolved into a world class biorefinery. This development has resulted in more complex processes and equipment, leading to exciting and demanding challenges for the employees. With the aid of loyal, competent and committed employees, we develop the biorefinery further.

But there has to be more of us. We are in the middle of a generation change, preserving and transferring expertise and solid experience of many years to our younger employees. It is important for us that our new employees get a good start, and we attempt to lay the foundation for this in the recruitment process. We have an established way of working with introduction programs and also continuously provide internal induction tutoring. That gives a better understanding of the company and is also a great opportunity to get to know colleagues across departmental boundaries.

Aditya Birla’s employee survey Vibes is performed annually in order to obtain knowledge of the employees' working situation. The result of the survey is turned into an action plan to ensure development.

Domsjö Fabriker is located just outside Örnsköldsvik, not far from one of Sweden’s most popular points of interest, the High Coast World Heritage. The High Coast offers a great deal of exciting outdoor adventures and during the last couple of years the area has become somewhat of a meeting spot for Swedish outdoor life.
