NEW YORK ( TheStreet.com) -- While I have reported on Warren Buffett's headline-making investments in companies such as Goldman Sachs (GS - Get Report), General Electric (GE - Get Report) and BYD, other, less flashy Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A - Get Report) holdings such as Nalco (NLC) may soon be earning the investor additional profit as well.Nalco was originally founded in 1928 as the National Aluminate Corporation. Since its founding the company has gone through a number of name changes, listings, delistings and a French acquisition. However, today it sits comfortably as the leading provider of water-treatment and process-improvement chemicals, equipment and services. On top of this, Nalco has earned a spot among Buffett's personal favorites.
