About Fortive

Foundation

Fortive is a new company with deep roots. Our portfolio is built with strong brands that are established leaders in the markets they serve. Our operating companies have long histories of solving customers’ critical needs. We originated from the $20B Danaher Corporation, bringing a committed leadership team and a powerful toolset for continuous improvement along. But our story is really just beginning.

Focus

Our successful separation from Danaher in July 2016 gave us a unique opportunity to focus on essential technology businesses driving exciting innovation in field instrumentation, transportation, sensing, product realization, automation and specialty, and franchise distribution. Our diverse teams around the globe are united by a shared culture and led by a uniquely qualified and experienced executive team.

"I feel really excited about how integrated our teams are. We sort of jump into each other’s space without even thinking about it, but that’s how we have rich, energetic discussions about things we are challenged by, and that’s how we come up with extraordinary results."

Carla Zampagliene, Usability Engineer, Invetech

Future

Our customers and the technologies they depend on are moving faster than ever before. This rapid rate of change creates a world filled with exciting new opportunities, from precision sensors to the Internet of Things. We are more committed than ever to moving essential technologies forward.

"We’re here for our customers, especially when they need it most. It’s great to work for a company of continuous improvement, one that constantly strives to do better. We don’t just meet expectations, we strive to exceed them."
