Rick Franklin Corporation
The Rick Franklin name is associated with many business interests. Rick Franklin Corporation (RFC) is an Oregon Corporation charted in 1978. The company's core functions include railroad services, heavy equipment contracting, heavy and light truck hauls, wood waste recycling, and specialized metal recycling (rail cars, mills, and heavy structural steel). Rick Franklin Corporation is not an engineering firm; however, our close relationship with Professional Engineers such as Brian Vandetta (PE#51041) equip us to tackle a wide range of construction challenges.
Rick Franklin started business in 1974 as a sole proprietor with one CAT D-8 tractor and over the past three decades has expanded the operation to various other enterprises.
Other such efforts include: assisting the railroad industry with derailment repairs and re-railing cars by being on call 24/7/365, rail siding extensions as well as repairs & maintenance, rail car dismantling, rail car leasing, heavy low-boy hauling, excavation, road building, site cleanup, land clearing, and offering bridges for sale from railroad flat cars.
