OUR HISTORY

Since it was founded in 1939, Berkes has established a solid experience in the engineering area. Was founded by Julio Berkes, a man that was a passionate about his work, who knew how to transmit to others the delight of doing the right things and the importance of innovation. These values were inherited by those who managed the company for the next three generations, and stay intact to this day.

In the 70s Berkes worked hard to build devices to the automotive industry, for the assembly of vehicles, with the approval of the European and Japanese matrices for the major car brands.
