Interestingly, Berghaus is a UK company. From their website the background is explained:

Back in 1966, a day out on the hills or crags could often be spent without seeing a soul. Those people who did get out there tended to know, or at least know of, each other. It was in this environment that two keen climbers and mountaineers from the North East of England opened the first specialist outdoor retail store in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The LD Mountain Centre quickly made its mark and joint founders Peter Lockey and Gordon Davison began to build an excellent reputation. The new store imported a range of products for UK distribution and this wholesale arm of the business needed a name. Thus, ‘Berghaus’ was born.
