a few words about
The story behind our agency
Who we are
Who actually is “BergStein”? You want to find out more about this brazilian agency with german origin? Long story short, we are three friends who decided to combine our potential and start a company in the fiercely contested stone market of Brazil. But why another company in a market, that seems to be completely saturated already? The answer is kind of simple. We can offer something – or better said: a constellation – that is pretty unusual here. Our professional backgrounds are totally different, such as our nationalities: one Brazilian (has lived in Germany for more than a decade) and two Germans. This initial situation enables us to better understand the differences, e.g. culturally, which regularly cause difficulties especially between the Brazilian and other international markets.
As you most likely know, clear and reliable communication is key for successful business. But often that is where business relationships fail to be established. This is where we come in: some guys from the other side of the ocean right on the spot in the middle of Latin America.
All three of us took the step and moved from Germany to the mountains of Espirito Santo, Brazil. Including our wives and children. So today we are living right at the core of Brazil’s stone mining industry. Considering our professional experience in different areas such as our cultural backgrounds, this specific combination of skills and individual viewpoints can perfectly serve as a catalyst, especially for foreign companies, to dive into the impressive Brazilian stone market.
Speaking about our professional experience, we are covering the areas of media, marketing and communication, business management as well as the crafting sector, which is on a very practical level dealing with the final stone products, e.g. installation of tiles, kitchen-countertops and so on.
Living in an area where it is not very common for people to speak besides Portuguese also English, we aim to be a “bridge” into European, North American, and Asian markets. Still, we also provide for South-American countries, as well as for the Brazilian market itself.
