TAMPA, Fla. -- January 9, 2013

Heat Pipe Technology, Inc., a division of MiTek^®, a Berkshire Hathaway
company (NYSE: BRK-A, NYSE: BRK-B), today announced that it has completed its
relocation to Tampa with a recent grand opening event at Heat Pipe
Technology’s (HPT) new 58,000 square foot manufacturing facility and corporate

The grand opening event was attended by the top leadership of HPT’s parent
company, MiTek^®, as well as representatives of the Tampa Hillsborough
Economic Development Council (EDC) and the Tampa Bay Workforce Alliance.

HPT recently relocated its headquarters to Tampa, from Gainesville, Florida,
and the Tampa location’s manufacturing facility is 45% larger than the
previous location. The increased manufacturing capacity and larger staff will
allow HPT to respond to rising demand for its new and retrofit HVAC solutions.
The new facility also allows for HPT to demonstrate its dehumidification and
energy recovery heat pipes and to properly showcase HPT’s Innovation Center.

Gene Toombs IV, HPT’s President, and Tom Manenti, Chairman and CEO of MiTek^®,
HPT’s parent company, joined Mark House of the EDC Executive Committee for a
ribbon cutting in front of HPT’s new offices.

“We are seeing a remarkable uptick in demand for HPT’s HVAC solutions, because
the return-on-investment for their use is so clear and compelling,” said Gene
Toombs IV, HPT’s President. “This new, expanded facility, which is near to
major domestic and international shipping routes, will allow us to take full
advantage of the interest in heat pipe technology, and we were pleased to
share our excitement with all those in attendance at our grand opening event.”
