Early in 1888, a group of leaders from Sandnes came together and began planning a yarn factory. The plant would be located near the coastal center of Sandnes.

SANDNES GARN AS was established under the name of SANDNES ULDVAREFABRIK in 1888, and is one of the oldest factories in Norway that still produce yarn.
