This paper explores establishment processes of a new industry located in a peripheral region of Sweden that is based upon old traditional industries in decline. Based on a qualitativestudy, we identify how actors within the new industry interact and intervene with the existing infrastructures and institutions that support the old local industry while trying to build new infrastructures. We identify key restricting and supporting mechanisms for theestablishment processes, with implications for policy and regional and entrepreneurship research.
