About Berg

  • History

    Berg has been providing camp solutions since 1883

    The Berg Companies is one of the oldest, continuously operated businesses in the State of Washington. It was originally founded by Fredrick Oliver Berg in 1883 under the name F.O. Berg. From the companies earliest days, F.O Berg was known as a pioneer in the industry and a quality supplier of remote camp solutions.

    Berg was a major supplier of tents and camp equipment to the railroads who were building new rail lines throughout the Northwest. In 1889 Berg became firmly established as a major camp supplier due to the Great Spokane fire, which destroyed most of the downtown area. In the after math of the fire Berg tents sprang up all over the city and remained throughout the rebuilding process.

    Over a century later, Berg maintains this legacy.  Although our products have changed significantly over the years to meet the evolving needs of our customers our pioneering spirit has remained.

    Today we offer a comprehensive portfolio of products and services uniquely designed to meet the needs of remote camp customers around the world.
