BERG the Company
Starting on his parents farm in the Netherlands, Henk van den Berg decided to make his first go kart over 29 years ago.
It was during one school holiday that the first BERG go-kart was created with a few pipes, wooden planks, wheelbarrow wheels and a chain and pedals from the cycle shop. This go kart was sold even before it was finished. The entrepreneurial spirit had been awakened...
...So BERG was born and has been a successful producer of wheeled fun and outdoor playthings ever since.
Now with its own go-kart factory in the Gelderland village of Wekerom in the Netherlands, BERG is now the world market leader in go-karts which are enjoyed by children of all ages as fun, healthy and safe activity toys.
And in addition to go-karts, BERG make and sell even more outdoor playthings with an ever expanding range of products.
What started in a barn on the farm has now become an International company with its go-karts being sold in more than 56 countries right around the world. Mission Statement
