About us

Where we are

The journey began in 2011 when two experienced engineers casually met at a fair trade. A passion for innovation and a spirit of entrepreneurship have done the rest!

Today, we are a team of passionate, visionary and innovative professionals with the ambition to have people every day live healthier and travel safer. In the 90s they worked together in the aerospace sector, but then followed different paths. In 2011, the context is quite particular: there is another toxic milk scandal raging in China, but beyond the most striking cases, the history of food scandals seems endless. On a scrap of paper, they started scribbling their ideas. The challenges are daunting: current detection technologies do not meet all the requirements needed to ensure a quality and efficient production. Although the concept is simple, to achieve a zero-defect target in the quality control industry, the technology needs to be cutting edge. A passion for innovation and a spirit of entrepreneurship have done the rest! A new generation of X-ray inspection systems was born, and in January 2011, a first European patent deposited. Following 3 years of intensive research, Xnext was founded in February 2014, as a so-called “knowledge-intensive start-up”.
