The settlement was founded in the late 19th century as a suburb of the former town Bromma along the railway line to Västerås. The trigger was the lack of housing in the Stockholm area. The owner of the former manor Sundbyberg, Anders Petter Löfström, initially sold around 40 plots of land around the new station Sundbyberg. There, workers' families settled. Gradually these were joined by industrial and craft enterprises. Sundbyberg grew quickly and had the main town Bromma surpassed in terms of the number of inhabitants soon. 1888 Sundbyberg was therefore separated from Bromma and initially formed an independent spots ( Sw: köping ). 1927 Sundbyberg received city rights.
