Building Phase 2, which will include a visitor centre and retail sales outlet, will begin immediately after the manufacturing equipment has been installed.

Will be completed in 2017.

Vesteraalens is proud to be the contracting owner of the new factory that will stand side by side with the Culture Factory in Sortland. Many new and exciting products will be produced here to meet the rising demand. The factory will be one of Sortland’s architectural hallmarks, where visitors will encounter an extremely handsome building design.

In addition to modern production facilities, the new building will feature a newly designed information centre for visitors. Here we will present Vesteraalens’ 105-year history in addition to the interesting coastal culture of our region.

There will be a food-tasting counter and a retail sales outlet for fresh fish products in the visitors’ centre.  

Vesteraalens expects to commence production in our new premises around the turn of 2018.

Building Phase 3 is anticipated to be completed the following year, at the turn of 2019.

We will post regular updates on the building’s progress – keep posted!
