Finspång is a traditional industrial city. The first industries were established in 1580 when a Royal factory for cannon and cannon balls was supervised. The industry was to continue for 300 years under supervision of the Dutch-stemming family De Geer. By Louis Gerhard De Geer (1622-1695), the Finspång Castle was constructed, and around it industries and an orangery developed into the city Finspång. Today the two main industrial areas are those of turbines and copper processing.
