COMET Group Acquires PCT Engineered Systems
Switzerland-based COMET Group signed a purchase agreement this week with the system integrator PCT Engineered Systems LLC, based in Davenport, Iowa. The agreement provides COMET with direct access to the ebeam end-user market and allows the group to expand its ebeam product portfolio.
COMET has been working closely with PCT for the last five years, and the two companies developed an ebeam-equipped system for the functionalization of polymer films and the curing of inks and coatings in 2014. COMET plans to retain all 85 employees from PCT, and Terry Thompson will continue to serve as general manager.
