Berk Enterprises, Inc., founded by Suzanne and Harold Berk, began over 60 years ago when Harold graduated from Ohio State University and moved to Warren, Ohio. According to Robert Berk, Harold’s son and current president of Berk Enterprises, his father formulated an insecticide that he named “QuicKill” and launched Berk Exterminating Company, with the city of Warren as one of his first commercial clients. QuicKill is still marketed today by Berk as an over the counter, ready to use insecticide which is sold throughout Ohio. Harold Berk also was very interested in numismatics, the study of coins, paper money and medals. This hobby developed into a second Berk company, Warren Coin Shop. A third company would later evolve, Warren Paper and Sanitation, which was the original name for what is now known as Berk Paper and Supply.
Under the current leadership of President Robert Berk, the company has made major changes and bold improvements by offering more diverse products, such as the Environ line. He has also established a well-organized warehousing complex in northeast Ohio which supports distributors and customers across the country. Another distribution center is located in Texas, and the company looks to continue expanding.
