Family Owned Since 1950
In 1950, all the country was looking for uranium, and so were Olive and Ken White, Sr. The only Geiger Counters available used headphones and Mr. White quickly learned that headphones created a problem in rattlesnake country. So he invented a better product. In 1958, the U.S. government announced it would no longer purchase uranium and soon.
