Detex to Exit the Guard Tour Market

Effective as of June 1, 2021, Detex Corporation will end our nearly century-old participation in the Guard Tour market.

The responsibility for the management of the sales, service and support for our guard tour products and systems will be transferred to Central Time Clock, Inc. (CTC) in the New York City area. CTC has been selling and supporting Detex guard tour products through three generations of family ownership, and they are totally capable of handling these responsibilities and eager to do so.

Beginning on June 1, 2021, our Guard Tour Sales Channel Partners and End Users may continue to procure Detex guard tour products through CTC. CTC has committed to maintain current pricing in effect at least through the end of 2021.

Contact information for CTC is as follows:

Central Time Clock, Inc.
5-23 50th Avenue
Long Island City, NY 11101
Phone: (718) 784-4900
Fax: (718) 472-9491
Principal: Hal Reinhardt
