History of Leupold
Leupold and Stevens is an American company based in Beaverton, Oregon, United States. It was started in 1907 and is a family-owned company currently been run by the fifth generation of the company.
Leupold & Stevens was founded by the German immigrant Markus Friedrich (Fred) Leupold and his brother-in-law Adam Voelpel in 1907, under the name Leupold & Voelpel. At the time, the company specialized in the repair of survey equipment.
In 1911, after the company successfully manufactured a water level recorder for John Cyprian which attained some decent success level, the company made him a partner in 1914. The company renamed itself as Leupold, Voelpel, and Co.
After their first invention which was the water level recorder, a series of inventions followed. One of which is the Telemark water recorder which was patented in 1939.
Three years later, In 1942, the company name was changed to its present form, Leupold & Stevens. Several optical instruments such as surveying equipment, rifle scopes, binoculars, and other related products are sold under the “Leupold” name while the monitoring instruments are sold and marketed under the “Stevens” brand.
Frustration Gave Birth to a New Gun Scope after World War II
When Marcus Leupold failed to hit a deer with his rifle because his scope fogged up, he is reported to have exclaimed “Hell! I could build a better scope than this!”.as he watched the deer bounded off.
Because of this disappointment experienced by Mr Leupold, Leupold and Stevens began making gun Scopes and by 1979, it is reported that the Leupold scopes were generating twice the total revenue of the Stevens instruments.
In 1969, the company acquired majority shares in another family-owned company called Nosler Bullets and subsequently sold off their portion in 1988. Other acquisitions include Biamp Systems and Fabmark.
Fast forward in 2008, the company purchased another optics company called Redfield Optics along with its brand name and all intellectual property rights. Today, the company has hundreds of employees and generates millions of dollars every year.
