About Us

Larry Jones, Founder

Jones Welding and Industrial Supply has been a leader in providing quality welding and industrial supplies and gases in the southeastern United States for over 35 years. Jones Welding started out as a small distributorship in Albany back in 1976. We have grown over the years because of our commitment to partner with our customers.

It came under the ownership of the Jones family in 1984 when Larry Jones bought the distributorship, renaming it with the current Jones brand. He ran the business for over 18 years, eventually turning over control to his wife and son due to illness. Since those early days, Jones Welding and Industrial Supply has grown into 13 stores servicing a distribution area covering mid and south Georgia, east Alabama and north and central Florida. Jones Welding and Industrial Supply is currently the largest independently-owned distributorship in the state of Georgia.

"Our customers are important to us. We've learned what it means to partner with them. Our goal is to improve their businesses. When they are strong, we are strong. That's our commitment, and that's why we've been in business as long as we have."
-Brandon Jones, General Manager
