This time, the last obstacle has been lifted: with the authorization of the European Union for the acquisition of Coulter Beckman , the American group Danaher will be able to finalize the biggest external growth operation in its history. The cost of the operation is in fact estimated at 6.8 billion dollars ...
With this operation, Danaher strengthens considerably in the world of analysis for the medical but also industrial environment.
Until now, in the world of measurement, Danaher has mainly sought to strengthen itself in the field of physical ( DH Instruments , Fluke , Hart Scientific , Raytek ), electronic (Fluke , Robin Electronics , Tektronix ) measurements, not to mention life sciences ( Hach lange , Lachat Instruments , Radiometer Analytical , Leica Microsystems ).
It also happens to Danaher to divest. This is how it has just sold the aeronautical activity of Pacific Scientific Aerospace (with the exception of Artus … for the moment) to Meggit for an amount of $ 685 million.
