Comet Clutches reveals new logo

Edgerton, Wis.-based Comet, a division of Certified Parts Corporation, has unveiled a new logo.

“Comet’s ownership may have changed over the years, but the dedication to quality has only grown stronger. Our new logo combines an updated font with design elements from the original logo,” said Jay Grafft, vice president of Comet. “We wanted to keep some of these components, such as the border, to reinforce the reputation that Comet has built in the industry for over 50 years. Our products are proudly made in the USA, which we have included in the new logo. In addition, our logo now features our tagline Made Locally, Trusted Globally to reflect our increased global reach.”

  1. This was past along to me, and how great. So glad Comet continues. I worked at Hoffco/Comet over 35 years before John Bratt – Tenax took it to its knees. I worked with Jay and and his father during transition and several months with Ed Killion after the move to Wisconsin.
    Great products, keep it going and growing

  2. Hey Jay,

    I like the new logo. Good job in taking the old and making it new. Have not heard from you for awhile so I guess things are progressing. Keep up the good work. Say Hello to Ed.
