Danaher Corporation is a Washington, D.C.-based American multinational business. The firm creates, produces, and sells a wide range of goods and services for the professional, medical, industrial, and commercial industries. Life Sciences,’ ‘Diagnostics,’ and ‘Environmental & Applied Solutions’ are the major areas of the corporation.
In 1969, Danaher’s predecessor, DMG, Inc., was formed as a real estate investment trust and incorporated. Diversified Mortgage Investors, Inc. was renamed Danaher in 1984 after the company’s name change in 1978.
BACKGROUND ON DANAHER CORPORATION
Danaher Creek in western Montana inspired the company’s name. Steven M. Rales and Mitchell Rales, the company’s founders, had their initial business ideas while fishing in the area. A Japanese manufacturing concept of continual improvement and waste removal was adopted by Danaher in North America, making it a pioneer in adopting ‘Kaizen ideas to manufacturing. Kaizen is a method for reducing inefficiency and redundancy via the standardization of procedures and programs (lean manufacturing). It has now extended around the globe and has been used in a variety of settings outside of the workplace.
HISTORY OF DANAHER CORPORATION
A significant part of Danaher’s history has been the development of the Danaher Business System (DBS), which started in the late 1980s within the Jacobs Vehicle Systems business. It was founded in 1969 as DMG, Inc., a Massachusetts real estate investment trust. Because of the incorporation into the state of Florida in 1978, the company was renamed Diversified Mortgage Investors Inc. In 1984, the firm changed its name to Danaher and reincorporated under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. Chicago Pneumatic (CP), which had combined with a sibling firm, The Jacobs Manufacturing Co. (Jacobs), in July 1984, and which had bought Matco Tools Corp. (MTC) in April 1981, was purchased by Danaher in June 1986.
In June of 1987, Danaher sold CP while keeping Jacobs, which included the Matco Tools Division, for its own purposes. In November 1991, Jacobs changed its name to Matco Tools Corp., and the other divisions under Jacobs were created as distinct operating businesses. MTC’s current distributorship agreements were bought by Danaher in January 1993, when NMTC, Inc. was founded by Danaher.
As part of a goal to join the manufacturing market, Danaher Corp. purchased twelve firms within two years of its creation in 1984. As a result, Danaher introduced Qualitrol in 1986. Sensors for subterranean fuel storage, motion sensors from Dynapar, and Qualitrol’s pressure and temperature gauges for the electrical transformer sector were also integrated into the unit.
Danaher Motion bought Radford, Virginia-based Kollmorgen. Danaher began to arrange its operations around strategic platforms in the mid-1990s, giving them an edge in large global marketplaces and the ability to compete indefinitely. From water to product identification to diagnostics, Danaher gained leading positions over the following decade in the industries that characterize it
SUBSIDIARIES OF DANAHER CORPORATION

Esko started in August 2007 that it was ‘joining forces’ with Artwork Systems Group NV (AWS), its main rival in the prepress packaging business.

The united EskoArtwork firm purchased Artwork Systems’ Enfocus brand of pre-flighting and workflow software in 2000 and made it a subsidiary for purposes of Process Service.
Esko changed its name to EskoArtwork to reflect the merger. EskoArtwork’s shares were transferred to Danaher in full in January 2011. Reverting to Esko in January of 2012, the logo was also altered.
