Detector Technology, Inc. was founded in 1983 by Raymond Roy and Peter
Graves. The original facility was located in Brookfield, Massachusetts
where they started making Continuous Dynode Electron Multipliers. In
1988, DeTech expanded its organization by forming the Glass Tech
division. Glass Tech's core business was specialty extrusions, draws,
and glass formulations for the fiber optic community. In 1992, due to
the rapid growth of both divisions, DeTech soon moved to a 10,000 square
foot modern facility in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.
In 1996, the company went through a major reorganization, by splitting
the two divisions into two separate companies. Directionally, this was
done to better serve the customer base and provided the ability for both
divisions to further expand. Raymond Roy kept the multiplier product
line and relocated the company to Palmer, Massachusetts. Peter Graves
kept the Glass Tech division and renamed the organization to Pegasus
In August of 2000, Raymond Roy retired from the company and DeTech
restructured again which allowed them to expand for further future
growth. Jay Ray was appointed President of the company, with Laura Ray
being named Chief Financial Officer. The company has now expanded its
capabilities into contract clean room assembly; Specialty Coatings
utilizing Physical Vapor Deposition, and Custom Glass Extrusions and
Draws. DeTech has also achieved ISO 9001/2000 quality certification with
a major focus on customer support and service.
In 2005 DeTech purchased a second manufacturing facility next to the
present head quarters. Further expansion occured with adding on an
addition to that facility in 2010. The total new manufacturing facility
is now 20,000 sft with its main building at 10,000 sqft.
The DeTech company philosophy "Committed to Excellence" is not just a
fancy slogan, but the way we choose to do business.
