Södertelje Tändsticksfabrik (1871-1908)
The "RODA ROSEN" matchbox was made at Södertelje factory.
 The Södertelje labels are very beautiful and present in relatively large quantities.
 Flower and Boat motives dominate the label collection.
The most popular brands "The Red Rose" and "The Ship" are still used in labels.
In 1908 the factory in Södertelje closed

The Jordbro match factory in Jönköping is the last privately
founded match factory of Sweden.  It was founded by a group in 1924.
The factory closed in 1928. Nevertheless it had a quite comprehensive sales.
