Arlöv is the seat of Burlöv Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden. It is statistically not defined as a locality of its own, but forms part of the contiguous Malmö urban area, 5 km northeast of downtown Malmö. Out of Malmö's 280,000 inhbitants, 11,000 live in Arlöv. However, in the 1950s, a public vote took place, deciding once and for all that Burlöv municipality would never be a part of Malmö.
Arlöv is known for its sugar industry, Sockerbolaget AB (owned by the Danish company Danisco). The town was also the home of the AB Svenska Järnvägsverkstäderna (Swedish Railway Works) or ASJ, who in the 1970s also built several automobiles for SAAB, notably the Saab Sonett II and III.
The former office building of Danisco Sugar was bought in 2008 by the Church of Scientology who opened their new church, a so-called "Ideal org" there in 2009.
