Berger Paints had its colourful beginnings in 1760, when Lewis Berger, an enterprising young German chemist had his big breakthrough. He had perfected the manufacturing process for Prussian Blue, one of the most important pigments of that period. This achievement marked the arrival of Berger Paints as a modern paint manufacturing company. Today, Berger Paints is a global force with a strong presence in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean Islands, the South Pacific, and the Middle East.
Berger has a strong manufacturing base in the Middle East, with dedicated plants in Dubai, Sohar, and Bahrain. These fully automated units create our range of Middle East specific products. They are equipped with aseptic processing areas, computerised dosing stations to create finely calibrated formulations, R & D centres that incubate innovative paint technologies, and automated loading bays to respond to orders in an agile fashion.
Our team thrives on a culture of inclusivity, and we lay emphasis on collaboration. Our folks have a strong sense of ownership and revel in the open and interactive work culture. Innovation and invention are of prime importance in any organisation and in our industry, doubly so. Performance and agility are highly valued at Berger Paints. Diversity is cherished and nourished, as we believe our people’s unique perspectives can add strength and creativity to the Berger offering.
Continuous learning is the key to the growth of the individual and the organisation. Training forms an important part of the experience at Berger Paints – leadership qualities are reinforced, and competencies are upgraded. We also regularly recruit new and emerging talents from top institutes.
Being closer to our customers means many things. It means being present in locations where they can reach us. It means working closely with them to understand their needs. It means getting closer to their hearts with focused products. It means listening to their queries and issues and responding accordingly.
We are expanding our retail presence in the GCC market so that we can be where our customers are. At our stores, we provide our customers with a smart interface - Colour World. This tinting technology within the retail store helps us provide them with a choice of innumerable shades.
Our range of topcoats, undercoats, designer finishes, and kid-specific products are testament to our commitment to giving our customers the best choices. Our products are tailored to meet Middle Eastern climate challenges.
