Gas detection expert Industrial Scientific has signed a definitive agreement to join the Fortive family of industrial technology companies as a member of its field solutions platform.
The new ownership will provide Industrial Scientific with additional capacity to accelerate the company’s vision of eliminating death on the job by the year 2050.
Justin McElhattan, President of Industrial Scientific, said the company is excited by the opportunities it will now have with the backing of Fortive, adding, “As our vision of ending death on the job comes into focus we will now have even more technological and financial support in that endeavor.”
Fortive is a public company that was a part of Danaher Corporation until July 2016 when it spun off to become its own company.
Industrial Scientific has added the iAssign™ Beacons and a new version of the Ventis™ Slide-on Pump to its portfolio of products.
