Fluke Networks began as a business unit within Fluke Corporation in 1992. Fluke Corporation has a history of more than 50 years as the world leader in electronic test tools, and was looking for new markets in which to grow. By 2000, Fluke Networks had grown substantially, and differences between Fluke Networks and Fluke Corporation were apparent – different customers, different sales channels and sales processes, and different products designed for different applications. In 2000, Fluke’s parent company, Danaher Corporation, separated Fluke Networks from Fluke Corporation and it is now a separate operational division with a new brand and a separate identity. Fluke Networks has been continuously profitable since then and in 2006 its annual revenues exceeded $300M. Approximately 45% of Fluke Networks’ revenue comes from outside the U.S.
