Our History 

"The key to success is through personal service."- R.F. Booth

In 1960, Booth & Associates, Inc. was founded by Richard F. Booth, and began as a small family-operated engineering consulting firm, that met the rapidly growing needs of our utility service clients.  Through the years, we have continued to expand into a multi-office, multi-state engineering consulting firm.


Here at Booth, we see the value and importance in creating and maintaining well rounded relationships with our clients. We believe relationships to be the core of our foundation and why, over the years, we have been able to partner with over 700 new clients.


Just as it was in 1960, Booth & Associates is still fueled and united by the common goal of providing service excellence in each step of the process.
