In 1983, David Bergmeier formed Bergmeier Earthmoving, a business based in Coolgardie, which became involved in the development of local open cut mines, crusher feed, road building, vat leaching and ore transport.
For the next 20 years Bergmeier Earthmoving continued to grow and expanded its operations to include bulk sand supply. Demand grew and in 1999 David formed Bergie's Soils. Bergie's Soils was based in Kalgoorlie and supplied a range of sands, gravels, garden soils and mulches to local industries as well as to retail customers.
Slowly Bergie's Soils grew and began to stock garden ornaments and pots. Water features followed, and now Bergie's stock a huge range of landscaping materials from limestone blocks, letterboxes, precast kerbing, retaining walls, plus heaps more.
Working alongside each other, Bergie's Soils and Bergmeier Earthmoving were able to supply orders of sand & soil ranging from 1 tonne to 1000 tonnes or more with ease.
In 2009 Bergie's Soils won the Kalgoorlie Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Business Award for a business with 6-10 employees.
After nearly 30 years, Bergmeier Earthmoving evolved to be much more than just earthmoving, just as Bergie's Soils became more the just soils. In 2014 David decided to bring his two businesses together under the one banner of BERGIE'S.
