Danaher acquired the three ocean science instrumentation companies, Sea-Bird Electronics (2008), WET Labs (2010), and Satlantic (2011), which were then combined to form a new entity — Sea-Bird Scientific. By combining the three companies, Sea-Bird Scientific built unprecedented capabilities in providing best-of-class tools for monitoring of physical and biogeochemical variability in waters. Today Sea-Bird Scientific employs over 200 people in the US, Canada, and Europe in development, manufacture, calibration, sales, and support of our products.

The Sea-Bird Scientific senior leadership includes: Casey Moore (President); Dr. Tom Mitchell (Vice President Commercial Team); Dr. Nordeen (Norge) Larson (President Emeritus, Chief Science Advisor); Dr. Andrew Barnard (Chief Technology Officer); David Helwig (Vice President of Operations); and Mark Thorpe (Vice President of Finance and CFO).

While Sea-Bird Scientific continues to shape our business to better serve our customers and the global science community as a whole, we remain firmly committed to the core attributes that built our companies. As testament to this, the previous owners of all three businesses that now comprise Sea-Bird Scientific remain engaged with the business.
