Bergs is based in the Baltic Sea region. With raw materials from sustainably cultivated forests, often in close proximity to our facilities, our subsidiaries process wood products for selected customer groups and markets around the world. Strong local units form the foundation for competitive operations
Local entrepreneurship is important in Bergs. The business is run on a decentralized business model with a high degree of self-determination within each subsidiary.
This means that local managers have a clear responsibility for the results of their operations and that they feel great responsibility for the business, its customers, staff and suppliers. At the same time, a local touch is maintained where we aim to be a respected player in society.
Each subsidiary also has the task of monitoring and proposing appropriate acquisitions if it can improve the company's ability to take market shares or increase profitability.
