Shelton will have a new corporate tenant and the former W.E. Bassett Building will have a new occupant in March 2014 when Comet Technologies USA moves in.
The company, currently in Stamford and a subsidiary of a Swiss company, makes and services the x-ray emitting equipment for machines used in manufacturing and airport security, said General Manager Jeremy Simon. The part is "the heart and soul of the X-ray machine," he said.
It moved to Stamford in 2004, has been seeking new quarters since 2008, Simon said. Comet Technologies will occupy 20,000 square feet for manufacturing, office space and facilities for repairs, service and testing, he added.
With help from a broker, "we found a great building for our business. We're fully remodeling it to our needs," Simon said.
The company has 25 employees, according to the general manager.
He praised the location of the Shelton site at 100 Trap Falls Road, which has become vacant since the W.E. Bassett building started shutting down in May 2012.
"It's right off the highway, which is great. I think we're going to be very happy there," he said. "We know Shelton. We're really looking forward to getting into our facility and starting a new chapter in our business."
