SF Bay Area

In 1967, three Stanford professors and two SRI research engineers started Failure Analysis Associates (now Exponent) in the Silicon Valley, the hub of the country’s technical innovation and global thought leadership.  Located just 30 miles south of San Francisco, our location in Menlo Park is Exponent’s corporate headquarters and our largest office. In the late 1990s, we opened our East Bay location in downtown Oakland close to the University of California Berkeley campus.  In Northern California, we work with startups, private and public companies, and government agencies serving a variety of industries including high tech, consumer products, healthcare, energy, insurance, and legal.

Exponent continues to take pride in our Bay Area roots and the long-standing relationships we have established with our clients and our community for over 50 years.
