Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget:
He was managing director of Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget from 1950 to 1960. On September 12, 1953 the golf course he created in Sundsvall was opened. The course was officially opened by His Royal Highness Prince Bertil. The SCA Men's Choir was established on August 28, 1957 on his initiative. His interest in male choral singing lead to the creation of choirs wherever there was an SCA run company, in Kramfors, Holmsund, Byske and Karlsvik. An icebreaking tugboat that belonged to SCA was named after him. It was later sold and renamed "Fram". In 1953, he was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences. He was chairman of the board of Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget from 1960 to 1965.

"The SCA Men´s Choir was established on August 28, 1957 on the initiative of the SCA manager in Sundsvall of that time, Axel Enström. His big interest in men's choir singing lead to the establishing of choirs in places where there were SCA run companies, among others: in Kramfors, Hlomsund, Byske and Karlsvik."

Axel Enström has a tugboat named after him

He retired in 1965 and died on March 9, 1977 in Sweden.

Research on Axel Enström (1893-1977):
Lennart Hagland (1928- ) wrote on July 24, 2005: "At [the] Enström's address in 1970 (Allégatan 2) I found in my database a family 'Strandberg'. The name of Mrs. Strandberg was Ingrid. Her name was in the phone book under another address, though still in Sundsvall. So I rang up and said: 'Are you Ingrid Strandberg from Allégatan 2 1970?'. She was, and she knew the family, as she and her husband belonged to the "domestic service" in [the] Enström´s villa. Mr. Strandberg served as Axel Enströms chauffeur. Axel Enström was the manager of SCA in Sundsvall and the villa sounds to be (or have been) of [an] upper class model, if that´s the word. The Strandberg family lived in an annex. Mrs. Strandberg describes the Enström couple as very kindhearted people. She´s willing to give more information, but this is what she remember for the moment."
