Fortive Business System

At Kollmorgen, improvement is perpetual.

The Japanese have a principle known as kaizen, for “continuous improvement.” It’s time-honored, and Kollmorgen has absorbed it to our core, enabling a perpetual cycle of improvement in quality, delivery, cost and innovation. This is the Fortive Business System.

Exceptional people develop outstanding plans and execute them using world-class tools to construct sustainable processes – resulting in superior performance. Superior performance and high expectations attract exceptional people, who continue the cycle. This is how the Fortive Business System executes on kaizen, and the results are proven: Quality, Delivery, Cost and Innovation.

There is one more vital element in the Fortive Business System story. It’s how we listen. Input from our customers is what enables and perpetuates the cycle that defines the Fortive Business System and ensures satisfaction in what we deliver.

At the foundation of Kollmorgen and the Fortive Business System is Fortive Corporation (NYSE:FTV.WI), our parent company. Fortive is a $6 billion diversified technology leader whose global footprint (24,000 employees in 40 countries) and product range reward the principles of kaizen and enable us to improve, innovate and deliver.
