The Garrett Commitment to Quality

Garrett Electronics, Inc., DBA Garrett Metal Detectors, was founded in 1964 by graduate engineer and businessman, Charles L. Garrett. Driven to provide the best metal detector, Garrett pushed the envelope of existing technology from the start, acquiring patents for innovative equipment and features. By the late 1970s, Garrett's team of engineers knew that the key to building the best metal detector was to apply scientific principles to the latest computer technology. Their foresight and tenacity paid off in 1982 when the company was awarded the first US patent for the use of a computer chip in a metal detector.

The Company reinvested the bulk of its profits into product research and development, assembling one of the largest engineering departments devoted to finding new and improved ways of detecting metal.

It was also in 1982 that Garrett was approached to draw upon its expertise in the field of hobby metal detection and challenged to develop the best metal detector for security at Los Angeles Summer Olympics. Garrett met the challenge by manufacturing and installing 60 walk-through and 120 hand-held detectors. The two-week long historic event was a huge success. It marked the very first metal detector screening at an Olympics competition and provided the springboard for the launch of the Company's security division.

Garrett Metal Detector's reputation for making the best metal detector is the result of a sustained commitment to product development and improvement combined with strong customer relations. Garrett offers formal, practical instruction on how to create successful security checkpoint screening installations through the Garrett Academy of Metal Detection, a comprehensive training program.
