The World Is Evolving. Yxlon Is Too.
Kevin Crofton, CEO Comet Group and President a.i. Yxlon
Yxlon becomes Comet Yxlon. At this year's Control trade show, the manufacturer of X-ray and CT inspection systems announced that it will change its name to Comet Yxlon, effective September 8, 2022. The new brand underscores Yxlon's long-standing affiliation with Comet, a leading global innovative technology company focused on plasma and X-ray technology.
The fresh, modern design of the new Comet Yxlon brand reflects the company's innovation and enthusiasm for solving customer challenges.
"The Comet Yxlon brand represents decades of X-ray expertise and a passion for making new things possible - in line with the motto "Led by experience. Driven by curiosity." said Kevin Crofton, CEO of Comet Group and President a.i. of Yxlon. "The rebranding strengthens our presence and reaffirms our importance with Comet Group."
Yxlon's entrepreneurial roots date back to the discovery of X-rays by W.C. Röntgen in 1895 and the manufacture of the first X-ray tube by C.H.F. Müller in 1896. Based in Hamburg, YXLON International GmbH has been part of the Swiss listed parent company Comet Holding AG, which unites a leading global group of innovative technology businesses under its umbrella, since 2007.
