HISTORY OF GARRETT

1950-1959

1950

Charles Garrett enlists in the U.S. Navy and attends a 6-month Electrician's Mate School, which begins his formal education in electronics. He quickly advances to the rank of Electrician Mate 2nd Class Petty Officer and is placed in charge of the 14-man electrical department on board the USS Bottineau (APA 235), an attack troop transport, during the Korean War.

charles garrett

1955

After his service in the Navy, Charles Garrett marries Eleanor Smith of Pennington, Texas. Eleanor is an elementary school teacher with the Nederland, Texas, school system. Garrett enrolls at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, and begins working towards his Bachelors of Science degree in electrical engineering.

early garrett history

1959

Following Charles' graduation from Lamar University, the family moves to Dallas, Texas, where Garrett begins working for Texas Instruments. He becomes an integral part of the company's Space and Electronics division and helps design the solid-state amplifiers and power supplies for a data encoder which is used in the Mars-bound Mariner II spacecraft. He also designs the electronic radar scanning templates and controls for the F111 aircraft.


1960-1969

1962

The Garretts move to the Garland, Texas, area where Eleanor continues her school teaching career and Charles accepts a position as Project Engineer with the Geotechnical Corporation. He becomes heavily involved in several earth science related projects. He helps develop advanced seismograph circuitry that is planted on the moon by Neil Armstrong in 1969 to detect moon quakes and other seismic disturbances. Garrett develops several other earth science related devices.

garrett family

1963

Charles Garrett rents commercial metal detectors and finds them unsatisfactory. He begins work in the garage of his Garland home to design, develop and build better ground search metal detectors.

1964

Eleanor and Charles Garrett establish their business April 1, 1964.Garrett introduces the dual searchcoil Hunter, his first metal detector, to the market (retail price $145.00).

1967

By 1967, Garrett competes with more than 35 companies who have a standing history of manufacturing and selling metal detectors. He recognizes early that his detectors must offer better searching capabilities than those available from his competitors.

1968

Garrett continues to improve his metal detectors by traveling with his family to field test his inventions.

Garrett sets up his first hobby trade show booth at the Prospector’s Club of Southern California, which captures the attention of the best known treasure hunting talent in the country.Garrett establishes the first distributor outlet, “Bowen’s Hideout,” a store owned by Harry and Lucille Bowen, in Spokane, Washington. Realizing the tremendous value of a distributor network, Garrett begins placing ads to set up dealerships across the country.
Garrett becomes the first manufacturer to eliminate oscillator drift. He also designs and patents his revolutionary, independently-operated searchcoils which greatly improve treasure hunting efficiency.Garrett is also the first to overcome searchcoil drift by inventing (and patenting) a special coaxial searchcoil winding technique.These discoveries launch Garrett to the forefront of the industry. Many of his competitors close their doors or later acquiesce that the Zero Drift Revolution, as it is now called, changed the metal detection industry forever.

1970-1979

1971

The Zero Drift Revolution sparks a movement towards an industry-wide effort to create technology that competes on the same level as Garrett's new detectors.
