The Swedish National Encyclopaedia says:
“Malmköping, urban area in Flen municipality, Södermanland (Södermanland County), 14 km NE of Flen; pop. 2,170 (1996). Industry in Malmköping is dominated by small business; the largest company is Uplandsklubben i Sverige AB (confections). The town has a number of museums, including a tramway museum. Malma hed (heath) is also in Malmköping.
– The town name (1804 Malmköping) includes “köping,” ‘trading place’. The prefix reminds us that the town was built at Malma village and Malma heath in Malma parish.
Malmköping was founded as a free trading place in 1784 adjacent to Malma heath, a meeting place for the Södermanland regiment. In 1863, Malmköping was reorganised as a separate ‘trading place’ municipality with barely 400 inhabitants. Malmköping has had a relatively diverse industry and a slow pace of growth.“
