Gilbarco Veeder-Root

Mixing Rich Heritage with New Blood. That’s the story of Gilbarco Veeder-Root and Fortive.

Although Fortive is a new company, our roots run deep. Our portfolio is built with strong brands that are established leaders in the markets they serve. Our operating companies have long histories of solving customers’ critical needs. Fortive is a focused industrial growth company driving innovation in the areas of field instrumentation, transportation, sensing, product realization, automation and specialty, and franchise distribution. The Fortive Business System (FBS) is the backbone of all our operating companies and drives every aspect of our culture and performance. We use FBS to guide what we do, measure how well we execute, and drive a continuous cycle of change and improvement.

With all this Fortive talk, where does Gilbarco fit in? Gilbarco Veeder-Root is Fortive’s largest operating company and the global leader of integrated technology solutions in the retail petroleum and commercial fueling industries. We have the proven expertise that our customers around the world have come to depend on. From our reliable fuel dispensers to intuitive point of sale to revolutionary operation management systems, Gilbarco delivers total integrated solutions from the forecourt to the convenience store.  In fact, we help manage the business and maximize the bottom lines for 19 of the top 20 convenience store operators in the U.S.  We’ve been around for over 150 years and headquarters are located in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Come learn about how you can be involved in creating something that you use on a regular basis and never think about. Fuel dispensers encompass electrical, mechanical, and software engineering so there’s something of interest for all!

The speakers will be Thor Smith and Farrahn Wood as a part of the Fall 2017 Colloquium Series.
