Devold Factory and Outlet
The Devold Factory is the place for those of you who would like to experience shopping in a new and original way.
If you have never been here you will definitely feel enriched - from experiences, food and drink, and not forgetting all the good deals you will find in the outlet shops. Those who have been here before always return – because it is one of the most unique shopping areas in Norway. The buildings’ original façades do not reflect the interior of the buildings, which are both modern and minimalistic.
Filling these old factory premises with outlet shops, cafés and artist workshops is both innovative and exciting. Devold Factory is the perfect gathering spot for friends, colleagues and the whole family. You can spend hours here or just pop in for a quick errand. Enjoy a good cup of coffee or a tasty meal in these historic settings where past meets present and provides a warm atmosphere.

The Devold Factory has been exciting and innovative right from the very beginning when Ole Andreas Devold, founder of the Devold Factory, started his own textile factory in Ålesund in 1853. With the latest in mechanical equipment, he quickly started producing hats, mittens, underwear and work clothes.
In 1868 he moved production to Langevåg, Sula where he built not only theDevold Factory, but also one of this country's first electric power stations.
Throughout the 1870s, Devold produced a multitude of knitted and woven woollen textiles. New garments were constantly being developed and adapted to meet the market’s needs and demands. Ole Andreas was both visionary and brilliant, and he soon realized that quality combined with new thinking was crucial for the company to succeed.
We are extremely proud of the history of these buildings, and we want to do our best to preserve and pass it on to future generations. If you look around you can still find many signs from the old days when the production of woollen clothes was in full production, and the workers muffled the noise from the looms with woollen ear plugs!
