Franklin Associates has provided Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Solid Waste Management consulting services since it was founded in 1975 by William E. Franklin and Marjorie A. Franklin. We have provided these services to clients in the public and private sectors ever since. Franklin Associates' professional staff is made up of engineers and physical scientists.

In 2003, we became Franklin Associates, A Division of ERG (Eastern Research Group). This association provided a great deal of synergy between the two firms, which had worked together for many years.

We take pride in providing objective, well documented results and advice to our clients. The many clients who have used our services repeatedly over the years give testimony to our integrity.
