About Mount Sopris

Mount Sopris Instrument Company was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1951 at a time when locating uranium for weapon and reactor use was of national interest. The company’s first product was a portable scintillation counter. Early on, Mount Sopris joined forces with another Colorado company, one that made respirators for use by polio victims.
