In early 2012, Marmon Crane Services Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Company, acquired Freo Group Limited. Marmon Crane Services Inc. is one of 11 business sectors within the Marmon Group, which is an international association of more than 125 manufacturing and service businesses with a collective revenue of approximately US $7 billion.
Berkshire Hathaway and its subsidiaries engage in a number of diverse business activities on a global basis. Common stock of Berkshire Hathaway is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (BRK.A).
This acquisition has paved the way for Freo Group’s ongoing expansion and gives us access to the world’s best practices, systems and processes of an international conglomerate.
