R.I.P Charles Garrett

It is with great sadness that we share the news that the founder of Garrett Metal Detectors, Charles L. Garrett, passed away peacefully and of natural causes early this morning, April 3, 2015. (US Time)

Since he and his wife Eleanor founded Garrett Electronics in 1964, their original garage business has grown to become the world’s largest manufacturer of metal detection equipment. He will be dearly missed by many, but his legacy will endure.
