This chapter focuses on the companies that Berkshire has given permanent homes to. These subsidiaries found refuge in Berkshire after suffering from serial ownership by successive parents, leveraged buyout operators, private equity firms, or bankruptcy trustees—all working under short-term time frames. These companies include Brooks Sports Inc., a manufacturer of running shoes; Forest River Inc., a recreational vehicle manufacturer; Oriental Trading Company, a direct seller of toys and party goods; CTB International Corp., a designer and builder of equipment for poultry and livestock farmers as well as bins for feed and grain storage; and CORT Business Services Corporation, a furniture leasing company.
