Since its establishment in the early 1970s, Rone remains one of the few locally owned, managed and operated firms in Texas.
The original owner, Ronald Rone, sold controlling interest to Leigh Engineering in 1998. Although the company changed hands, the operating name remains Rone Engineering Services, Ltd. Rone is a Texas Limited Partnership. Daily management of Rone includes Mr. Richard K. Leigh, President, and Mr. Larry Bracken, Vice President and Mr. Mark D. Gray, P.E., Vice President.
Rone later established a second office location in Houston. In 2008 Rone sold its Houston assets to Mr. Eric Garcia who established JRB Engineering, a full service environmental, geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing firm. JRB Engineering is a Texas DBE and registered HUB firm. Rone enjoys a mentor protégé relationship with JRB Engineering. Rone is open to establishing additional mentor protégé relationships with other minority or small firms; please contact our Dallas headquarters office for more information.
In 2006 the Austin office was opened. Since the Austin location was established, Rone has serviced the central Texas area from Fort Hood to south of San Antonio and beyond.
Rone recently established an office in San Antonio. In 2011 Rone's increasing workload in the San Antonio area made it possible to expand and launch the newest office location.
