Varex Imaging Corporation, formerly known as Varian Medical Systems, is the world’s largest independent supplier of medical X-ray tubes and image processing solutions. From medical imaging, to cargo screening and border security, their components are used by X-ray imaging system manufacturers everywhere to detect, diagnose, and protect. As a global business with offices and manufacturing facilities around the world they have been doing business in the Salt Lake Valley for more than 50 years and are happy to have the Utah office function as corporate headquarters.
Their products are designed to harness the power of X-ray energy to pioneer advances in any application. This requires them to maintain an extensive product catalog. They are also a leading supplier of high-voltage connectors, X-ray collimators, ionization chambers, mammography paddles, solid state automatic exposure control systems and buckies for digital imaging.
As a leader in imaging components, their goal is to help their customers become world-class system suppliers by strengthening their competitiveness, and enabling them to bring products to market faster. Varex provides OEM components to all of the largest X-ray imaging companies in the world. As most of their customers are also some of their toughest competition it is critical that they stay ahead of the curve in product technology and cost. If you have had an X-ray taken their products were probably engaged in the process.
Varex is currently poised to do more than $700 million in annual revenue and maintains more than 700 Utah employees with over 1300 worldwide. Recently, they announced the purchase of the imaging components branch of PerkinElmer. This acquisition provides an excellent complement to their extensive X-ray component catalog which will help boost sales over $1 Billion and helps expand their footprint in the industrial sector.
