Our history

Our history begins in the 1930s. 

Our History

In the 1930's, Martin Berggren the founder on Berggren Oy, worked together with another engineer in the small office on Lönnrotinkatu.

 

In the 1950's, the operation was strongly influenced by the economic cycle in the domestic and international markets, but Berggren's result was profitable during the whole decade and the volume of cases increased.

In the 1960's, Berggren developed in the slipstream of industrial growth; more and more skilled IP agents were needed, and the number of staff grew first to 20 and then to 30.

In the 1980's, Berggren expanded its operation by acquisitions and made significant investments in progressive office technology; the group of experts was increased by dozens again.

In the first decade of the third millennium, Berggren had already grown to a firm of more than 100 employees and took a great leap forward in developing its comprehensive selection of IP services as well as sophisticated electronic IP tools and work environments.

In the current decade, Berggren is a European full-service IP house with strong expertise not only in Europe but also in China and the United States.
