About the Company

The driving forces of Berger Paints - reflect the very spirit of its founder Lewis Berger - who laid the foundations of brand Berger way back in 1760 in the UK. With modest beginnings in India in 1923, today, Berger Paints India is the second largest paint company in the country with a consistent track record of being one of the fastest growing paint companies, quarter on quarter, for the past few years. Starting out as Hadfield's (India), it had just one factory in Howrah, West Bengal. By the close of 1947, Hadfield's was acquired by British Paints (Holdings), UK and came to be known as British Paints (India). In 1983, the name of the company was changed to Berger Paints India. Currently, the majority stake is with the Delhi based Dhingra brothers.

Berger Paints has established itself through a long course of time. The company is acclaimed as a game changer in the sector with a vibrant portfolio of paints and tailor-made customer services in every paint segment. It has consistently outperformed its competitors in the past few years and is on its way to be on the top spot. Berger Paints India is headquartered at Kolkata, with strategically located manufacturing units across India (including the subsidiaries).
