Philips to sell Dunlee facility to new CT tube company

Starting off 2018 anew, Royal Philips made the decision in February to sell off its Dunlee CT tube facility in Aurora, Illinois to Chronos Imaging.

Chronos agreed to continue to supply Philips with CT tubes as part of a long-term agreement, while developing new ones for both the OEM and replacement CT tube markets.

"We are proud to support Philips and the very talented and experienced team in Aurora, Illinois for the ongoing production of CT tubes," Robert Piconi, Chairman of The Chronos Group, said in a statement at the time. "Additionally, we are excited to develop new innovative solutions to address critical needs in the CT tube market, to help reduce the cost of healthcare services to the public and private sector."

Despite selling the Dunlee facility, Philips did make a gain in the form of AGITO Medical.

"AGITO Medical will further strengthen Philips' Diagnostic Imaging business in the area of multi-vendor services," a Philips spokesperson told HCB News at the time.
