In its biggest acquisition to date, billionaire Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is buying Portland-based Precision Castparts in a deal valued at $37.2 billion. Precision Castparts Corp., which makes metal parts for the airplanes and other industries, is the second-biggest company in the state. On its website, the company claims: “With few exceptions, every aircraft in the sky flies with parts made by PCC.”
