Engineering innovation is a lifestyle. We live and breathe it everyday as we focus on precision solutions that will empower cutting-edge technologies to shatter barriers and advance scientific breakthroughs. See the possibilities.

Innovating Since 1986

In 1986, Moxtek began with a collaboration, resulting in an exciting first breakthrough—our ultra-thin polymer X-ray window. This got us hooked on discovery. So alongside our partners, we continued to push the limits of performance in projection, imaging, and optics, completely revolutionizing the technology along the way.

Since then, we’ve become a leading supplier of advanced nano-optical and X-ray components for display electronics, imaging and analytical instrumentation.

Collaboration at The Core

We’re involved in the caliber of innovation that demands collaboration. Our current and future partners are vital in our advancements to develop and manufacture new technologies. We consistently welcome new customers, new partners and new ideas because these are at the core of our mutual success.

Extreme Quality

Attention to detail is built into our development and manufacturing culture. We focus on quality in all activities to produce the very best results and products. Our goal is to be your preferred supplier or partner. We get there by infusing a high level of attention and detail into the things you care about.

From Moxtek, you should always expect an extreme commitment to customer satisfaction, quality control requirements, continual improvement, and effective collaboration.

    I’ve worked at Moxtek for three years now. I also lived in Utah when my kids were young. One time I took them to a remote canyon in Southern Utah—with no signs or trails, and told them to explore. “There’s something to be found here. Go find it.” They discovered a spring, petroglyphs, pictographs, pottery shards and Anasazi cliff and kiva dwellings. There is so much in Utah to explore and experience.

    What I enjoy most about Moxtek are the people and the customers. We have great products; they sell themselves. We get to work with some cool companies, and it’s rewarding to have our products be a part of theirs.
