Hello All,

      I received the a copy of a letter Ken White sent out to White's distributors today, 18 June 2020.   I've attached the jpeg file I received.
      The gist of the letter is that White's is suspending MANUFACTURING operations at the Sweet Home, Oregon plant while they "re-evaluate" the future of the company.
      (Actually, I'll attach the image once I remember HOW to attach images)

BA

Since I haven't been able to post the image, here is the text of the letter:

June 18, 2020

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


(note: the typos in the above are as they appear in the photo copy I have)

hello, indeed it would be a shame if white's were to disappear and I hope that this will not be the case and I doubt it very much, I think rather of "one step back, two steps forward" the white's detectors are so efficient that it is with the SMPI that I found my first gold coins, I wish them good continuation.
nice day
