About Bergen Group

In 1979, while watching the simultaneous sunset and sunrise in the town of Bergen in Norway, the idea of providing bundled services and solutions required in electronic manufacturing came to the mind of Rajinder Kumar Kaura, a young visionary from India. This vision was given professional reality when Bergen Associates Pvt. Ltd. was founded in 1983 in New Delhi. Initially set up as a conduit for the supply of European machinery to the Indian electronic industry, the company introduced international quality and excellence in the field of manufacturing, assembly and testing of electronic components and equipment.

A growing need in the industry led to a rapid expansion of the initial vision and the transformation of the company into the progressive and competent Bergen Group of Companies. 30 years experience in hardware electronics gave Bergen Group the competitive edge to establish the company within the Indian High-Tech and Solar industry. Bergen Group’s competences and capabilities are acknowledged by its Indian and international partners and customers. Rajinder Kumar Kaura also holds the position of Vice President of Solar Energy Society of India.
