The city of Mountain View, home to more than 74,000 residents, is in Santa Clara County, in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Named for its views of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the city shares its borders with the cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Sunnyvale, as well as Moffett Federal Airfield and the San Francisco Bay.

Situated in Silicon Valley, Mountain View is home to many high technology companies. In 1956, Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory, the first company to develop silicon semiconductor devices in what came to be known as Silicon Valley, was established in Mountain View. Today, many of the largest technology companies in the world are headquartered Mountain View, including the Fortune 1000 companies Google, Symantec, and Intuit. Notable companies from Mountain View's economic past include the now defunct Arrow Dynamics (formerly Arrow Development Company), a rollercoaster design and manufacturing company. During its time in Mountain View, Arrow was contracted to build many of the original rides at Disneyland. Due to its history as a center for semiconductor manufacturing, Mountain View has seven sites on the Environmental Protection Agency's Final National Priorities List. The sites were formerly used by companies including Fairchild Semiconductor, Intel, and Raytheon.

Mountain View’s history of industrial activity makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern for workers and others.
