Industrial Scientific Corporation to be Acquired

At the end of July 2017, one of our major client companies Industrial Scientific announced that they had agreed to become a group operating company of Fortive Corporation, which includes Fluke. The agreement on the change of ownership will enable Industrial Scientific to increase capacity and accelerate their vision to eliminate deaths in the workplace by 2050.

Fortive is a public company that had previously been part of the Danaher Corporation before it was spun off in 2016. With 2016 revenues of $6.2 billion, Fortive is a diversified industrial growth company with essential technology businesses that drive innovation in field instrumentation, transportation, sensing, product realization, automation, and franchise distribution.

High Impact Coaching & Strategies congratulates all of our friends at Industrial Scientific for their continued successes and wishes them well for future growth as part of the Fortive family.

Our History with Industrial Scientific Corporation

During 2014, High Impact Coaching & Strategies completed a comprehensive DFT (Demand Flow Technology) deployment that included a facility redesign and relocation for Industrial Scientific.  Working closely with Industrial Scientific we redesigned their manufacturing and service facilities with the objective to consolidate the manufacturing and service operations, redesign product flow in addition to fitting the entire new operations environment into effectively less space within a new facility.

Industrial Scientific Corporation New Facility

Jim Quasey, Industrial Scientific Corporation – Senior Vice President
“A new state of the art headquarters facility warrants a world-class manufacturing and service operation.  We weren’t looking for an incremental change, we needed step function level change.  High Impact Coaching & Strategies offered extensive hands-on experience and a history of results that met our needs…and they delivered.”

Together with the power of DFT we achieved the goal and more:-

 Manufacturing capacity increased by 200%

 Service Capacity by 81%

 Customer Quoted Lead Time reduced from 10 to 5 days

 Manufacturing Lead Time reduced from 6 to 1 day

 Overall floor space reduction of 10%

Following the completion of a comprehensive DFT deployment Industrial Scientific was awarded the 2015 Manufacturer of the Year in Pittsburgh, USA.  The competition was fierce with companies such as Boeing included in the short-list for the “Greater Than 400 Employees” category.
