The Berg Family’s American Business Experience Begins
The Berg Family’s American business experience begins in 1910 with Samuel Berg, David Berg’s grandfather, immigrating from Eastern Europe. Armed with no financial resources, formal education, business, or political connections, his family’s survival rested solely on the success or failure of his decisions and actions. The work ethic, practicality and propensity for risk taking forged from this desperate situation are the philosophical underpinnings of today’s Berg Corporation.
The Buzz Berg Wrecking Company
In the late 1960’s, Samuel’s entrepreneurial spirit continued with his son, David’s father, Gerald “Buzz” Berg, with the establishment of The Buzz Berg Wrecking Company. Starting with the interior strip out of Baltimore rowhouses and growing into Baltimore’s premier demolition contractor.
The Berg Group
In the late 1970’s, Richard and David Berg entered the business assisting their father with the building of The Berg Group, an integrated consortium of businesses that included asbestos and hazardous material abatement, interior strip out, razing of structures, concrete preservation and restoration, concrete recycling, waste hauling, material recovery facility and the original scrap processing facility.
The Berg Corporation Founded
In 1998, The Berg Corporation was founded by David Berg. Joined by Christopher Trendell, Richard F. Maska and Zachary Gilden and later Terry Anderson, Berg has become the preeminent hazardous material abatement, selective structural and building razing operation in the Mid Atlantic region.
