This week, Berkshire Hathaway revealed plans to acquire Precision Castparts Corp (PCC) for a whopping $37.2 billion, amounting to Warren Buffett’s largest deal in history. PCC is a Portland, Oregon-based aerospace supplier, manufacturing various complex structural airframe components and other parts for the aerospace and oil and gas markets.
PCC’s organization is comprised of companies dealing in Investment Cast Products, Airframe Products, and Forged Products, including Wyman-Gordon, Special Metals Corp, and Titanium Metals Corp (TIMET). PCC famously purchased TIMET, a major domestic source of titanium mill products, in 2013 for $2.9 billion.
This deal comes off the heels of the $1.5 billion consolidation of Alcoa and Pittsburgh-based RTI International Metals, a global manufacturer of titanium specialty metal products.
