Berkshire Hathaway

Berkshire Hathaway started off by Oliver Chace as a textiles company about one hundred and seventy years ago in Rhode Island under the name of Valley Falls. Ninety years later, Valley Falls merged with Berkshire Cotton Manufacturing Company. In 1967 the company expanded into insurance business. Berkshire ventured into insurances with the purchase of National Indemnity Company. It bought equity stake in Government Employees Insurance Company commonly known as GEICO in the late 1970s forming the heart of its insurance operations to date. GEICO is a major source of capital for Berkshire Hathaway’s other investments. Berkshire Hathaway’s insurance as well as reinsurance business activities are run by 70 local and foreign based insurance companies. These provide insurance and reinsurance of property & casualty risks primarily in the United States of America. The organization’s insurances also include health, accident, and life packages.
