We would like to personally thank and congratulate B&J Wholesale’s founder, James ‘Bud’ Cobbs. From the start of his career in the oilfield equipment business, he always put servicing customers first. While working at Vetco Gray, after seeing his employer turn customer after customer away who needed used equipment repaired, he took matters into his own hands. Bud opened his own shop and at night after finishing his day job, would work tirelessly to repair customers’ equipment. This is how B&J began and since then, he has always gone above and beyond to give customers exceptional customer service. While Bud will always be a sounding ear and just a phone call away, we wish him all the best as he spends well deserved time with family and friends.
