How We Operate

Marmon Holdings, Inc. is one of the world’s most decentralized large industrial
organizations.

For nearly half a century, cofounders Jay and Robert Pritzker grew Marmon as a collection
of independent businesses under entrepreneurial managers. In place of a traditional,
centralized corporate headquarters, they established a small professional office to assist
business unit management.

Building on this long-established decentralized approach, each Marmon company
operates independently within a sector structure that provides access to the experience
and expertise of other Marmon companies in related businesses and markets. Corporate
staff provide counsel and support in areas including finance, legal, human resources,
innovation, and continuous improvement.

The high degree of autonomy afforded to Marmon businesses is also consistent with the
operations of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., which acquired Marmon Holdings in 2008.
