Over our 75-year history, the world has changed dramatically. But through inquisitive research, and with courage and perseverance, Comet has succeeded time and again in reinventing itself, shifting the boundaries of technology and succeeding through innovation. This would not have been possible without our deep conviction that, with innovative technologies, we can make a better future. Reflecting this, the motto for our anniversary year is “75 years exploring for better”.
75 years of the spirit of discovery at Comet
Into Radio Frequency
In the footsteps of visionaries
The sky is no longer the limit
New possibilities ahead
Comet goes public in the mid-1990s, opening up new possibilities for its evolution. Responding to this fast growth, Comet builds its new headquarters in Flamatt.
Comet goes big
The group accelerates once more at the beginning of the new millennium, making a first step toward the end-user business, through the acquisition of FeinFocus, pioneer of microfocus X-ray inspection systems. This is followed in 2007 by the purchase and integration of YXLON International, one of the world’s leading x-ray system manufacturers. At a single stroke, Comet doubles its size.
The semiconductor market promises opportunities and the company therefore focuses in exclusively developing it's traditional 2 core technologies: Plasma Control and X-ray.
More Global and Digital than ever
Digitalization is advancing. Terms such as big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence are finding their way into the lives of more and more people. That’s why in 2020, Comet acquires the Canadian software developer ORS. Software-driven insights in production will help customers become more productive and conserve resources.
To better meet the rapidly growing demand for Comet products in Asia, the company expands its operations in the region.
