Danaher (DHR) Company Overview

Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR) produces high-tech equipment for a broad range of industries, from surgical microscopes to airline smoke detectors. In the conglomerates industry, DHR competes against Goliaths like General Electric Company (GE) and 3M Company (MMM). The company generates slightly more than half of its revenues from overseas.[1] The company earned $11 billion in revenue and $1.1 billion in net income in 2009.[2]

As a conglomerate, DHR can apply its efficient manufacturing operations to many processes. Part of DHR's strategy is to acquire underperforming technology ventures and implement efficient manufacturing operations. In 2009 the company acquired 15 companies.[3] As a retailer, the company is susceptible to changes in the economic environment. The sluggish global economy caused a decrease in the demand for Danaher's products which resulted in net sales falling 12% in 2009.[2]
