In 1973, under the darkness of night, Berger St. Paul’s Office and Industrial Division relocated $5 billion to the new Minneapolis Federal Reserve headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. In the early 90’s, Berger Dallas warehoused and transported two sections of the Berlin Wall that were on world-wide tour here in the United States. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Berger provided transportation for relief efforts to the city of New Orleans. In 2008 Berger New Jersey delivered two 37 foot steel beams that were part of the original World Trade Center to Giants Stadium in New Jersey. The beams were signed and put on display as part of a remembrance and tribute for the victims of 9/11. These beams will be contained in the new National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center Site in New York City.
