YXLON International KK becomes Comet Technologies Japan KK

July 01, 2021

Japan has always had its finger on the pulse of innovation when it comes to science, technology, automotive engineering, consumer electronics, robotics or even medical devices. So it comes as no surprise that Comet has been present in this region for many years with its X-ray systems (Yxlon), supporting our customers locally.

In order to open up our attractive range of X-ray modules under the Comet brand to the broader NDT market in Japan, we are now strengthening our presence - a step that is also reflected in the name change from Yxlon International KK to Comet Technologies Japan KK. "Experience and curiosity are at the core of our Comet brand," says Mineto Nakajo, General Manager of Comet Group in Japan. "That's why Comet customers can expect to find in us an experienced partner who will boldly help shape and co-create tomorrow's solutions.”

Strategically located in Yokohama - one of Japan's leading industrial cities and a major cluster of manufacturing companies - our local team will continue to address the most demanding technology challenges and support our customers.

With the recent announcement by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to treat the semiconductor industry as a "national project", we can expect further impetus and investment - and with it new opportunities for Comet Group's entire range of offerings: X-ray and RF power technologies. But to that another time.

Mineto Nakajo, General Manager of Comet Group in Japan:

 

“The Japanese technological market is living a second youth with opportunities never seen before. By being in Japan as one company we'll be faster in providing turnkey solutions to our customers.”

 

 

 

Comet Group is present in Yokohama under brand Yxlon since 2007.
