Originally founded in 1963 as Comet Electronics (now Communications & Signal), the Kansas City-based company started by servicing, supplying, and installing the area’s railroad microwave communications network. Our commitment to service built a strong reputation throughout the Midwest as a company depended on for finding solutions and meeting needs. Since 2001, the current and third-generation of leadership diversified Comet with two new companies while continuing to grow the established lines.
Today, Comet Industries, Inc. and subsidiaries is comprised of four companies: Comet Rail Products, Inc., Comet Communications & Signal, Inc., Comet Electronics LLC., and Comet Port Services LLC. Market diversity from the four companies is one of the strengths of our business. Each line is slightly different with its own unique requirements, yet each is bound to one commonality – service. Exceptional service continues the success for Comet and shapes our company culture with an attitude that brings continuity to our approach across all markets.
Comet remains a prominent supplier to the rail industry with AEI communications, OCR technology, freight car parts, reconditioned material, and other related services. Throughout the years and generations of leadership, Comet has evolved to keep pace with technology allowing us to deliver a comprehensive menu of solutions to satisfy our customers.
