In the fall of the same year, the company moved into its new building in Flamatt, and 2003 saw the grand opening of another subsidiary – COMET China Ltd. – in Shanghai.
A significant milestone was the first step toward a systems business (end customer business): In 2004 COMET HOLDING AG acquired FEINFOCUS, a company which had just launched the versatile Y.COUGAR x-ray system on the market.

Non-destructive testing became a broad-based market for COMET with applications in the aviation, automotive, energy and electronics industries.
