2023 Corporate Profile: Detex

Aug. 3, 2023

Detex Corporation traces its roots back to a predecessor company founded in 1878 by Abraham A. Newman. Originally focused on manufacturing and selling stationary watchclocks, the company underwent a series of mergers in 1923. Consolidating with the Watchman's Clock and Supply Company, Eco Clock Company, and the Watch Clock Division of Hardinge Brothers, Inc., it adopted the name Newman Watchclock Corporation. However, a few months later, the name was changed to Detex Watchclock Corporation to differentiate itself from the old Newman Clock Company and emphasize its connection to existing Hardinge and Eco users.
