Our History

S & B Plant Services is a privately held, family company that was originally founded in 1998 by our parent company, S & B Engineers and Constructors, Ltd.

We were rebranded in 2008 with a specific, strategic plan for the overall company. S & B Plant Services expanded the S & B business model enabling our customers to get more services under the S & B umbrella. By working directly with all the S & B groups, S & B Plant Services provides our customers with comprehensive capabilities ensuring all aspects of a project are handled.

Our parent company, S & B Engineers and Constructors, Ltd., is a well-established petrochemical/chemical, consulting, engineering and construction firm headquartered in Houston, Texas. Founded in 1967 as a partnership between Mr. James G. Slaughter, a civil engineer, and Dr. William A. Brookshire, a process engineer, S & B provides an array of fully integrated engineering and construction services to the chemical, petrochemical and refining industries.  Its original offices and headquarters are located on Park Place Boulevard near the Hobby Airport and Houston Ship Channel industrial complex.  S & B also has locations in Clute, Texas, Greenville, South Carolina and throughout Louisiana in addition to several other offices in the Houston area.

S & B's tremendous success reflects a continuing commitment to excellence and a flexibility to respond rapidly and appropriately to a wide range of client needs. We pride ourselves on the ability to undertake jobs large or small, revamp or grass roots, at any stage of development. This competence has been established because of the strong technical and engineering expertise and experience that S & B has demonstrated throughout its history. Over 95 percent of the projects awarded are from clients for whom we have completed at least two previous jobs.
