Fortive Corporation, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak impacting communities across the world, provided an update on initiatives currently underway across its portfolio to help address the pandemic in its local community of Everett, WA and beyond.
“Our highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and the communities in which they work and live, as we collaborate to lessen the impact of COVID-19,” said James A. Lico, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Across the company, our teams are acting with great energy and speed to apply our technology toward innovative solutions to solve these critical challenges. I could not be more proud of how we are living our shared purpose of creating essential technology to accelerate progress in the world.”
Knowing that much of the technology Fortive and its operating companies provide is essential to its end-users, Fortive has remained committed to meeting the needs of both employees and customers in the safest possible way. Fortive has also pledged to support its operating companies as they strive to make a difference in the fight against the virus, both locally and globally. Some of the many initiatives already undertaken by Fortive and its portfolio companies include:
Fortive is particularly appreciative of the response and leadership of key local and state officials and their continued partnership in these efforts. Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin, Governor Jay Inslee, and Congressman Rick Larsen (D-WA) and their offices have provided invaluable support since the beginning of the pandemic. To show their commitment to the region, Fortive is providing financial support to the Snohomish County COVID-19 Relief Fund, led by the United Way, helping to do their part to lessen the broader impact of the virus.
