Berkshire Hathaway History

Berkshire Hathaway was founded in 1839 by Oliver Chance as the Valley Falls Company.

In 1929, the company merged with Berkshire Cotton to form Berkshire Fine Spinning Associates.

In 1955, the company merged with Hathaway Manufacturing to form Berkshire Hathaway.

In 1962, Warren Buffett began buying stock in Berkshire Hathaway.  By 1964, he owned the majority of the company, which was failing.

In 1967, Buffett expanded the business into the insurance industry with the purchase of the National Indemnity Company.

In the late 1970s, the company acquired a large position in Government Employees Insurance Company (GEICO).

In 1985, Berkshire Hathaway ceased all textile manufacturing and became a holding company.

Today, Berkshire Hathaway owns many popular companies such as GEICO, Dairy Queen, NetJets and Fruit of the Loom.  The company also owns substantial portions of Heinz, American Express, Coca-Cola and IBM.

My name is Reginald Hollis. I work at your Southern Energy plant in Addison,AL. As an African American Employee. I know that we are be discriminated against on a daily basis. It’s been going on so long. That it is considered the Norm. And when anyone attempts to complain. They’re threatened,fired. Or harassed and bullied so much, that the quit. There is to many problems for me to go into. I’ve called the Clayton Homes hotline number. But time is of the essence here. I’m asking for someone to come and speak with us(African American Employees) And hear our complaints. Not just give us Lips service. Expecting us to go on. If you wanna understand how the plant is being supervised. Check the turn over rate and the financial report. WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. BECAUSE WE ARE BEING BULLIED FOR SPEAKING OUT. PLEASE,PLEASE HEAR US OUT. WE’RE ASKING FOR HELP. WE SHOULD NOT FEEL LIKE SECOND CLASS WORKERS IN 2017. THANK YOU

forest river CEO, I too bought a 2017 rpod 179 late April have have used it 3- times on enjoyable camping like its supposed to be….but the rest of the summer its been in the shop broken…and warranty?? don’t make me laugh..no one whats to touch it due to Forest River’s lack of payments back to their shop. It currently sits in a lot with a broken slider…unusable, 4-months old and letters/emails ,calls (or lack of responses) from Forest River service dept…no one whats to respond…had I known this was a lemon, I would not have bought it..so much for the american dream when you retire and want to see the USA you cant because I bought the wrong product.

It seems no one in this company wants to respond to me…Do you ????

The home at New Port Richey, Florida is being sold by Jose Sanchez of Berkshire Hathaway, Florida Properties Group, at 3126 Little Rd.,Trinity Fl,34655.It is being advertised with the wrong square footage with no record of permits pulled for any added sq. footage, a difference of 1161 sq .ft. and an added bathroom!! My realtor and real estate attorney have both tried to rectify this situation but so far to no avail. Mr. Sanchez has been rude and vindictive and went so far as to raise the sq. footage even further. His broker “Mike” was notified and we are still waiting for results. We previously went to contract on this property and found all the discrepancies. Before we bid again, my attorney suggested this matter be resolved. I would appreciate someone looking into this matter promptly. Thank you, My telephone number is 813 818 XXXX

Gentlemen
I am an employee of a paint store group that sells you’re Lenmar brand of professional finishes. To keep it short you’re products in some cases need improvement. This particularly is applicable to you’re white conversion varnish product line S75X white base. I have seen and resolved several complaints concerning this product. The product is tricky to use as excess film build causes cracking. Competitors have products that do not have the problem to the same degree. An example of a product that is easier to apply and preforms better is the Acrom Pro previously a Becker product now Sherwin Williams. I would like to know what is being done on the R&D side to improve performance. My reputation as well as you’re rep. is being adversely effected by these failures. My ability to sell the Lenmar brand is causing loss of income and degrading the acceptance of the entire line. I have more to say regarding product development but this issue is primary. New lower VOC products are need to move forward. This is true in Lenmar but also Corotech.
I want to stay competitive and offer my customes the best solution to solve coating and environmental concerns.
Than You for you’re attention
Bob LaMark

Yea, though I may be walking through the valley of corporate death, I hope Berkshire Hathaway will request a meeting with me for some very, very specific and likely profitable NVEnergy information about utilizing two presently defunct Tracy power plant steam units and parts of Pinion Pine syngas holdings.

Resurrection may be right around the corner.

Hello, I know you are not directly responsible for this mess which I am about to explain to you……. We bought our home from Oakwood Homes in Roanoke VA and there were issues at closing which resulted in my fiancees parents paying cash for our home out of her inheritance. We found out this spring that Oakwood charged her parents $20,000 more than the price we agreed on…. Then on top of that the crooks at Oakwood arranged a loan through Equity one to pay for a singlewide which we put on a lot for her son. We also found out that her parents also paid cash for the singlewide too …… I am contacting an attorney and the state Attorney General to determine our legal options…. but I would like to hear from you before this goes public once I pull all of the paperwork together ……….

I will be calling Fruit this week for an appointment in Bowling Green with previously mentioned officers of the Company. I am just down here in Georgia. I hope Rick will take my call. My improved Garment can be very meaningful to Benjamin Moore, Brook’s, Fechheimers, & Garan. Why not “Keep some in the Family”…

Attn: Mr. Buffett, Hamburg, & Munger ref: FOTL, Russell & Jeraee
Yesterday I heard that GILDAN (which is a very, very young company) made up of a high number of ex-Fruit of the Loom employees was number three in sales in the U.S. of underwear behind Fruit and HANES. Looks like they are getting “Their HANDS on HANES and, FRUIT, as well” It is also my understanding that GILDAN had a sixteen percent (16%) NET, NET PROFIT after taxes…oh yeah, we must remember that for GILDAN that means NO TAXES in the U.S.A., and that they will be debt free soon. They are also in the sock business. It troubles me that my orders with Fruit are not being shipped in a timely manner and could cause big problems to the retailers who will be hurt by the late deliveries, if they are delivered at all.. I am ready to throw my hands up and go back into full retirement after being super-successful in the off-price fleece and tee shirt (closeout & irregular) business that I brokered somewhere around $330,000,000.00 in my twenty-two year run…singlehandly, I might add. Selling the manufacturers “mistakes” that ended up in Walgreen’s, CVS, Rite Aid, Family Dollar, Dollar General, etc, etc. I am just a humble “broker, seller” who made “a silk purses out of sow’s ears”. What Fruit doesn’t realize is that all the closeouts and irregulars are much of the orofits of the company that MUST be sold to turn the “bad” inventory into working capital. It is really disheartening to see these GRAND OLD COMPANIES with such well known BRAND NAMES pushed to the wayside by an upstart named GILDAN which got it’s name Gil from Gilbert and DAN from Daniel when they needed a corporation umbrella and Gildan was available..They are to be commended for their success. Gildan has it together. I’ve been to Montreal and Barbadas each twice, met Glenn & Mike and other head, and done humongous business with them In their office in Barbados over their large board-sized meeting table hangs the mahogany framed Prospectus from when they went public in the 90’s with an inscription on the back thanking them for all their efforts, WHICH I GAVE THEM.

I have one small sample bag with several garments that FOTL & R-J currently manufacture in ther lines. However, my items are improved and if incorporated into their lines would in time gain them the MARKET SHARE in mens, womens, & childrens wearing apparel. I also have six chains in a particular industry that comprises 40,000 retail stores thar do NOT carry apparel and I would like to “open them up” with my improved garments. I need to tie in with FRUIT-R & J and they need me. I would like to meet with someone who CAN MAKE DECISION of epic proportion there at Berkshire Hathaway who oversees FRUIT-Russell_Jerzee.
I AM NOT looking for money, I have money to invest, what I need is the organization and assistance. After all, I am 72 years of age and experience. I certainly hope to hear from someone there at BH who is open to restoration.
Thank you,
Mike Coolik (706) 322-XXXX mikecoXXXX@yahoo.com

Attn. Marc Hamburg – Charles Thomas Munger Jr. – Warren Buffett
How can FRUIT OF THE LOOM, & RUSSELL-JERZEE ever hope to compete on a level playing field with GILDAN, when Gildan pays zero (0) taxes here in the “Good ole U.S.A.” and only pays 1% Corporate Tax in Barbadas. No wonder they have 80% or so market share here in the U.S. That company has put so many American Mills out of business i.e. TULTEX & TEEJAYS, bought ANVIL, and made companies like HANES, FOTL, RUSSELL-JERZEE look like amatuers and gobbled up the tee shirt business as well as golf shirt and fleece business without paying a nickle in taxes…Shame on those in office who have let this happen.

Dear Mr.Buffett: My name is Panzegna Wood. I insured two Mercedes- Benz with your company (GEICO) Government Employee Insurance Company, for over two years before I had an accident. I had full coverage on both on both cars at the time of the accident. The reason l had chosen (Geico) was because I had learned on PBS that GEICO was owned by ” Berkshire Hathaway”. I respect you as a man of integrity and expected your company to conduct itself with the same integrity as its owner. I am bringing this matter to your attention via this web page because I have been unsuccessful in having my car repair through your employees at ‘GEICO”
I had an accident (which is the reason we purchase car insurance) now for over a year, and to-date my car is still not repaired from the accident.
I have sent e-mail to your corporate office several times along with photograph of my damage vehicle,but to date I have not received a response from your corporate office, or anyone from GEICO.
I would appreciate it very much if you would direct someone in your office to assist me with having my car repaired.
thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
Cordially,
Panzegna Wood
GEICO INSURED AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT.
