Tektronix, Inc. (→ WikiData) (short: "Tek") is an American company best known for manufacturing test and measurement equipment such as oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, and video and mobile test protocol equipment.

In late summer 1945, C. Howard Vollum. Melvin J. "Jack" Murdock, Miles Tippery and (later) accountant Glenn McDowell decided to found a company to produce their first oscilloscope. It incorporated on January 2, 1946 as Tektronix (a name suggested by Tippery) and was headquartered in Portland, Oregon. In 1956, the company moved to Beaverton, Oregon.

The IPO was in 1963.

By 1976, Tektronix employed nearly 10,000 staff and was Oregon's largest employer.

In November 2007, Danaher Corporation acquired Tektronix as a subsidiary for $38 cash a share, which equated to a valuation of approximately $2.8 billion.

Tektronix is now a subsidiary of Fortive, a spinoff from Danaher Corporation.
