In years gone by Goring Kerr enjoyed having the position of being the number one metal detector manufacturer in the world. Unfortunately, through many acquisitions the Goring Kerr brand has suffered. The once powerful and market leader is now in the top 10 metal detector manufactures of the world.
Metal Detector Industries
Many other industrial level metal detection manufactures have pushed and made their way to the top. Today’s leaders are Safeline Metal Detection and Loma. There are many lesser entry level systems that provide basic coverage and are suited for many applications, such companies as Eriez Magnetics, Lock Inspection and others.
Goring Kerr the once proud leader in metal detection sensitivity and system performance is now one of the pack. An unfortunate change for this once powerful leader.
