Carl Zeiss, the international specialist in optics and optoelectronics, has announced the planned acquisition of the US-based Xradia – a medium-size company providing innovative 3D X-ray microscopes for industrial and academic research applications.

The closing of the transaction is subject to the fulfillment of customary closing conditions including a required filing with the US competition authorities. After closing, Xradia will operate under the new name Carl Zeiss X-ray Microscopy.

In recent years Xradia has recorded strong growth in revenue, profits, and number of employees based on its excellent technology position meeting customer needs worldwide.

Xradia has become a provider of established solutions for advanced material research, natural resources and geology, and semiconductor process optimisation – as well as the life sciences. Both parties have agreed to keep the purchase price confidential.
