Far West Technology’s Philosophy is to apply its skills and expertise to manufacturing innovative scientific products with unique requirements. It is proud to offer its high quality products and services to the medical, physics, and environmental health fields in both government and industry.

About the company
Far West Technology, Inc. is a high technology company. It designs, manufactures and distributes radiation measuring devices. It was founded in 1971 as a small business and has expanded every year. Health Physics Instruments merged with Far West Technology in 1987 and was founded in 1972.

FWT is heavily involved with three different product lines dealing with three different markets: chemical dosimetry for radiation processing, detectors for precision measurements, and instruments for radiation safety. This diversity has helped to assure its continued growth and stability.

Each of the three product lines is represented by specialists in chemistry, mechanics and electronics. They work together not only to develop new products and ideas but also to assure quality manufacturing. Their collective broad expertise has made the company strong and resilient.
