Why do you call them _Danaher_ 576, 577, etc.?

I thought Tek wasn’t acquired by Danaher until 2007. Tek was still under independent ownership at the time the 575, 576, and 577 were made, wasn’t it?

If you’re naming it by current ownership, then wouldn’t it be more correct to call it Fortive?

Ownership often doesn’t reflect branding, anyway. E.g., a Vauxhall Corsa or Chevrolet Corvette is a Vauxhall Corsa or Chevrolet Corvette, not a General Motors Company Corsa or General Motors Company Corvette.

Or am I missing something here?
