Roper

To reflect its continued evolution, the company changed its name from Roper Industries to Roper Technologies in April 2015. The company operates businesses that design, develop, and engineer products for a host of niche end-markets that include healthcare, transportation, food, energy, water, education, and academic research. Roper has a fairly balanced sales and profit mix within its four segments. In FY17 the RF Technology segment was its largest (at ~40% of total revenues). Roper's next largest business segment was Medical & Scientific Imaging (31%) followed by Industrial Technology (17%) with Energy Systems & Controls rounding out the portfolio (12%). The U.S. accounted for 77% of FY17 sales. (08 Nov 2018)
