To our valued White's Dealers- This is a very difficult message to write, but the time has come for retirement from White's Electronics. We are suspending manufacturing operations at our Sweet Home facility while we re-evaluate the future of the company. It is never easy to make these decisions, however, we are faced with the reality of intense competition in the industry and ongoing counterfeit instruments coming from China. Lastly, there have been critical material shortages since the Covid 19 shutdown that we now find insurmountable. All of us here in Sweet Home are grateful for your service. We consider each you part of the White's extended family.
Sincerely, Ken White
Please leave a comment below and let us know what your favorite or first whites machine is!
Today I've learned of the Past...Either by ignorance or greed we loose another battle as our world turns to "off shore" purchasing...dreamt of owning a White device...been let go from 20 years of decated employment to feel that sting! Knowing that remnants of White may yet be in Garrett of USA, my purchase (at 69...birthday soon) is pledged to here!
My retirement with my wife will include your device!!
Thanks YOU ALL, both White & Garrett for Your allegiance, integrity and perseverance.
Sincerely, Theo H
I send my wish that you are able to relaunch the company some time soon, and want you to know I will always try to keep the detector I aquired working and in use as a tribute to White metal detectors.
I ask only for any help possible in maybe a source for a battery packand possibly a service manual to aid my preservation attempt. thanks for the products you made and the sport they make possible.
