Here is what Mayar Capital has to say about Vontier Corporation (NYSE:VNT) in its Q2 2022 investor letter: 

Vontier, the point of sale terminal and software supplier to gas stations across America (and Danaher spin-off) continues to perform as expected. The group closed a notable acquisition of DRB Systems in the year. DRB Systems is a provider of point of sale and business software solutions to the car wash industry and therefore has a similar but EV-agnostic profile to Vontier. Given the pedigree of Vontier, we expect integration of this business to be strong and prove the Vontier Business System (named after the famed value-creating Danaher Business System) and value driver for Vontier’s shareholders.”
