Great news, Whites detectors has sold out to Garrett detectors company. Should be interesting to see what Garrett can produce under Whites name in the next yr. I hope the half sine wave hybrid appears on the market. Its been a long long time in testing. Over 5 yrs.

All too often 1 company buys out another, only to pillage & plunder whatever is useful to them, then on-sell whatever bits are left, & proceed to close the business down & lay off most of the employeees.
This is often done to acquire a company's patents, manufacturing licences, trademarks, technology, etc, & then remove a competitor.
We can hope Garrett dont do this to Whites, but dont hold your breath!

Well, Garrett got all of Whites machinery necessary to mfg Whites detectors, including a state of the art circuit board assembly machine and a soldering machine for the boards too. And they got all the held patents and new projects too and software needed for mfg of new machines. All the defunct unused machinery was put on a site by Whites to sell, things not directly related to the actual mfg of the current detectors, etc.

I hope Garrett keeps the two brands seperate and distinct. I hope that Garrett continues the mxt pro in the Whites line, gmx, 24K, and other notable machines that would bring instant income to Garrett. Hopefully Garrett gets the help needed from a current Whites key employee to get the Whites line going again.

Garret is a very smart well marketed company , but they struggle to sell in Australia, with the whites brand already trusted they with gain a good market share and the competition with minelab will be great for us. Imo.


Wish in one hand and poo in the other , See which one fills up first !
