Eslöv is a city in Scania and the seat of Eslöv Municipality, Skåne County in southern Sweden. It has a population of 16,551 (2005).

Today Eslöv largely serves as a suburb of Malmö and Lund.

History

Eslöv was a small village until the beginning of the railway age. In 1858 a station on the main line between Stockholm and Malmö was opened. In the 1860's more railways were built and Eslöv became a junction with lines in six different directions. The population began to grow and in 1875 it had reached 1,240 and Eslöv got the status of a "köping" (market town). In 1911 it had 5,400 inhabitants and got town privileges (See "stad"). The population continued to grow and reached 7,000 in 1951, 11,000 in 1964 and 15,000 in 1995. The local government reform of 1971 made Eslöv the seat of Eslöv Municipality , which today has more than 30,000 inhabitants.

Industry

Trade flourished around the new station and eventually it also attracted industrial establishments. Among the city's companies are Procordia Food AB (formerly Felix AB).

Notability

Sweden's tallest wooden house, "Lagerhuset", is located in the city. In 2007 a large scale renovation of the building will take place and it will later be possible to rent apartments in it. The building was first built as a storage magazine for cereal during World War I.

The medicine "Salubrin" was invented in Eslöv. Several other big companies have also have their main offices in the town.
