The World's Most Innovative Companies List - Forbes

It is great to see some test and measurement companies in the Forbes' list of The World's Most Innovative Companies. Out of the 100 companies listed, Agilent Technologies came in at number 55, Danaher (parent to Tektronix, Keithley and Fluke) at 68 and Thermo Fisher Scientific at 71. Let me know if I have missed out mentioning any test and measurement related companies in that list.

Keep up the innovations in test and measurement!


  1. If you are wondering, like I was, why National Instruments was not included in this list be sure to read the fine print below the list that calls out a minimum market capitalization of $10B to be considered. NATI has a current market cap of about $3.4B.

  2. That's a fine observation, Jeff. In fact I was looking out for NI too. They are indeed a very innovative company but unfortunately, like you mentioned, their market cap prevented them from appearing in this list.
