About us.

For a better and more sustainable future.

PACKAGING IS OUR BUSINESS AND PACKAGING HAS SHAPED OUR HISTORY.

Bergen Plastics is a pioneer in the European plastic industry. The company was founded in 1947, by Mr. Trygve Heggland. Since the beginning passion for plastic, innovation and sustainable growth have been the driving force towards what we are today. In our history the company have been involved in hundreds of development project, some have proved to be icons in the industry and some not. We have learned to believe that everything is possible with plastic, and it truly is.

The industry and Bergen Plastics have changed a lot since 1947, and today we are probably one of the leading converters in Europe when we look at our innovation capacity, our factory floor with the best equipment and infrastructure you can have and our strong force of employees that is well trained and educated and specialists in their area of the company.

In 1947 there was one and sometimes two workers at each machine, and the factory was only running 8 hours, 5 days a week. Today Bergen Plastics have a big fleet of machines from, Netstal, fully automated and 0,2 workers on each machine. The factory is today running 24/7-365 days, with OEE on record levels of our industry. And with our WCM projects we will never be satisfied, we are fighting every day to make the organisation more competitive by creating competent people to attach losses, on every level of the company.

At Bergen Plastics we believe that this is the best way of securing the future, building on our strong history and improve and innovate every single day. We have a fantastic team that consist of exceptional workers – This is what have shaped our history, this is what is shaping our future.

Allways focus on the FMCG and High Volumes.

Production

20 years ago Bergen Plastics was one of the big European suppliers of CD-jewel boxes and trays. At that time we served Europe with probably the best quality in the market.

As today we always used the best equipment and factory lay-outs. We are proud of our history, and it has shaped who we are today in a very positive way.

Bigger machines - always the best quality.

Production

As a leading manufacturer of thin walled packaging Bergen Plastics have always invested in our future. For us the trend is bigger and bigger machines, higher clamp force and faster cycles. Today we have probably the most advanced machine and factory setup in the market.

This together with a brilliant team of motivated and highly skilled work force makes us a powerful partner for several players in the FMCG market.
