Quantum leap through acquisition of YXLON


The 2007 takeover of YXLON International Holding GmbH, based in Hamburg, Germany, represented a strong start in the systems business for COMET, also improving the position of its Feinfocus product line.

YXLON International is the world’s leading provider of x-ray testing equipment for industrial applications. The company had been created in 1998 through the merger of Philips Industrial X-Ray (Hamburg) and ANDREX (Copenhagen) and then bought out by its management.
Additional potential would be tapped in the years to come by utilizing synergies in innovation, distribution and applications.
