The name Berger or Lewis Berger is today synonymous with colour worldwide. But actually the origin
of the name dates back to over two & a half centuries in England in 1760, when a young colour chemist
named Lewis Berger, started manufacturing in Europe, 'Prussian blue' using a secret process that every
designer and householder coveted. Mr. Berger perfected this process & art of the blue colour, which
was the colour of most military uniform of that time. Enriched by the imagination of Lewis Berger, the
unending quest for creation and innovation in the world of colour & paints still continues.

which was a small colonial venture producing ready- mixed stiff paints, varnishes and distempers setup

Subsequently in 1947, British Paints (Holdings) Limited, an international consortium of paint
manufacturing companies bought over Hadfield's (India) Limited and thus the name changed to British
