Accu-Sort, a Telford, Pennsylvania company with approximately $90 million in revenues, is a leading manufacturer and marketer of stationary scanners used most commonly in manufacturing, distribution and sortation applications. First-year Danaher EPS accretion is expected to be minimal.
"Accu-Sort broadens Danaher's footprint in the Product Identification space from marking and coding to include scanning, inspection and reading," commented H. Lawrence Culp, Jr., Danaher's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The pending acquisition of Accu-Sort, less than a year after our Willett acquisition, and less than two years after our Videojet acquisition, demonstrates our commitment to the Product Identification market and positions us to grow one of our key strategic platforms. It also enables us to expand our served market and provides us with attractive new segments and opportunities. As always, we are excited about the value we believe the Danaher Business System can bring to this business."
Danaher Corporation is a leading manufacturer of Process/Environmental Controls and Tools and Components. (www.danaher.com)
