Brief History:
Established in 1964 as a joint venture between Bergen Iron Works, Inc. and Carpenter and Paterson Inc, Bergen-Paterson Pipe Supports, Inc. was formed to service the growing requirements of the electric power industry. The purchase of F&S Central in 1983 provided a new product line. The merger with Power Pipe Supports, Inc. in 1996 resulted in the creation of Bergen-Power Pipe Supports, Inc. which expanded market share, increased sales coverage and increased manufacturing capacity.

In March of 2011 Bergen-Power was acquired by Hill & Smith (USA) Limited along with the Paterson Group, to augment its existing Pipe Supports Group. This acquisition allowed Bergen-Power access to overseas markets for new nuclear plants while adding production capacity with the Pipe Supports Group plants throughout the world for commercial projects. In 2014 the company was officially renamed Bergen Pipe Supports, Inc..
