Born of Danaher, but with a future uniquely its own, Fortive will comprise operating companies focused on creating essential, technology-based solutions to solve the world's most critical challenges. Fortive has an outstanding heritage in Danaher, which provides a tremendous opportunity from which to launch our new company in 2016.
We will be a $6 billion, Fortune 500 company with a strong foundation of success built over 30 years and an amazing team leading the path forward. Fortive operating companies thrive in a world that demands speed, rigor and agility, and together, we can immediately forge ahead with confidence and action, as we create and implement solutions that address our customers' most critical challenges.
Like Danaher today, Fortive is passionate about continuous improvement and growth for our associates. The Fortive Business System will be core to our operating model, the cornerstone of our culture, and our competitive advantage.
