Whites Electronics…

I found out yesterday that White’s Electronics is closing it’s doors – hopefully not for good.

The White’s name and brand goes back many years and is responsible for a legion of dedicated users/fans who I’m sure will continue to be loyal if the company can somehow find a way to get back on track. This alone ought to be attractive to a potential buyer or investor.

My direct association with the company goes back to the early 80’s when the late Ken White Sr. took a personal interest in my endeavors to form a national organization for detectorists (FMDAC). He and Alan Holcombe supported the effort in numerous ways and I will forever be grateful for that assistance and for having known and been in their company.

Since then White’s has continued to support the pastime, as well as a great many worthwhile causes (often without fanfare or publicity) all the while producing a great product. Today I’m saddened yet hopeful that down the road White’s Electronics will once again be the sought after brand it deserves to be.

Good luck and Godspeed to everyone at White’s Electronics.
