The company and its house flag originates in the shipyard founded in 1925 in Svelvik by Yngvar P. Berg. Relocated in 1931 to Drammen, the shipyard was renamed accordingly, from Svelvil Slip & Verksted to Drammen Slip & Verksted. In 1954, Peter Y. Berg, the founder's son, increased the development of the shipyard; in the 1970s; the shipyard, managed by Berg father and son, released 2 to 3 ships per year. In 1972, the building and repairing activities were allocated to tow different branches of the company. The shipyard specialized in the building of big (150 m in length), refrigerated ships for the swift (average speed, 23 knots) transportation of fruit, known as "Drammen-type". There were 43 Drammen-types ship built, including 31 of them in the Berg shipyard. The last ship, with hull number 101, was released in 1986. Since then, the company, still chaired by Peter Y. Berg and his two sons, Yngvar P. Berg and Christian A. Berg, specialized in ship repairing.
The house flag of Drammen Slip & Verksted is similar to the house flag of the Peter Y. Berg shipping company, with the company's logo in stead of the "B".
