Berkshire Hathaway

History highlights of the Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies:

  • Founded more than 40 years ago, Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies (BHHC) began as eight separately managed regional insurance companies located across the United States.
  • As originally chartered, each company wrote primarily in its own “home state” – with some business in bordering states. The eight companies began as personal lines writers.
  • Each company had its own local underwriting and management presence in its respective territories – a core value BHHC continues to embody.
  • Starting in the late 1990s, the remaining six companies began operating under the shared brand identity of Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies. The name was selected as a legacy to its local roots, while also representing the superior financial strength associated with being a Berkshire Hathaway company.
