B.R. Jones and Associates Inc. was organized in 1981 to represent manufacturers of geophysical equipment in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Mississippi. The company owned equipment for demonstration to potential customers but occasionally rented it when it was not needed for other purposes. As the use of geophysical instruments increased in non oil and gas industries the demand for equipment rentals outgrew an “occasional” rental and our four state area. In 1997 it was decided for legal, accounting and other reasons to separate equipment rentals and sales. B.R. Jones & Associates, Inc. retained the sales of equipment and K.D Jones Instrument Corporation was organized to rent equipment. The two companies share facilities and some personnel.
On January 1, 2009 the two companies were officially merged. B.R, Jones was dissolved and K.D. Jones Instrument Corporation is the surviving company
