Our Menlo Park location is Exponent's global corporate headquarters. We are located just 30 miles south of San Francisco in California's Silicon Valley, where the company was founded as Failure Analysis Associates in 1967. We also have a second Bay Area office in Oakland.

The Menlo Park office location positions our consultants to respond quickly to incidents, be in proximity to clients, and recruit top talent from universities in the West. Our Menlo Park laboratories allow our consultants to gather insights by testing and analyzing evidence, samples, prototypes, and human subjects.
