"In the early 1980's, Steven and Mitchell Rales' vision of a manufacturing company, dedicated to continuous improvement and customer satisfaction... Danaher traces its origins back to 1969 when its predecessor, DMG, Inc., was organized as a real estate investment trust. In 1978, DMG, Inc. changed its name to Diversified Mortgage Investors, Inc., and in 1984 we adopted the name Danaher.

"An important element of the Company’s history has been the evolution of the Danaher Business System (DBS) which began in our Jacobs Vehicle Systems business in the late 1980’s. It was there that Danaher became one of the first North American companies to utilize the principles of kaizen, the Japanese word for continuous improvement." [1]
