SPAL is a Portuguese corporate group that manufactures and markets porcelain for domestic and decorative purposes. Over a span of almost five decades, SPAL has maintained the same dynamic approach and drive towards surprising the market.
SPAL was launched in 1965, when the company began to design, produce and market porcelain for domestic use and for the hospitality sector. In 1970, it became the first company in the ceramics sector to launch a design competition, and since then it has maintained its partnerships with design and engineering schools, so as to conduct research and to develop and innovate its services.
In 1994, SPAL opened its first store to the public in Lisbon. It currently boasts six stores throughout the country, one in Lisbon, two in Alcobaça (the two factory stores, one of which is an outlet), another in Gaia, one in Funchal and the Spal outlet store of Vila do Conde Porto Fashion Outlet. The brand is present in over 45 countries with a production turnover of 18 million pieces per year, employing over 470 workers. It is one of the largest companies in Portugal, and proof of its acclaimed standing lies in the awards and distinctions it has accumulated over time.
In the SPAL outlet store of Vila do Conde Porto Fashion Outlet, you will also find highly regarded pieces depicting public figures, such as São José Lapa, Filipe La Féria and Fátima Lopes. Modern, distinctive pieces that will bring uniqueness to your home or workplace are also available in this store, created by the Spal Studio design department, in addition to every day usage plates and glasses and other decorative pieces, at considerably low prices.
