Mike Jones established the business in 1981, operating out of his home with only 3 employees. The company was built on pride, honesty, integrity, and above all hard work. These qualities have always been instilled in Mike Jones as well as his employees of then and now. M.L. Jones is now among the top subcontractors in Northeast Oklahoma.
M.L. Jones offers highly skilled services with an emphasis on safety. Maintaining a safe work environment, including strict compliance with Federal OSHA/HAZCOM regulations, is a top priority of the company. All new employees are required to complete 10-hours of OSHA training, and Forman are required to complete a 30-hour OSHA training course as well as first aid and CPR. These courses are administered by an OSHA Outreach trainer employed by M.L. Jones. Employees are also trained and equipped with all correct licensing for tools, lifts, and lasers. Safety programs are constantly reviewed to ensure a quality “Safety First” company.
M.L. Jones takes pride in their management and office personnel. Over the years strong relationships have been built with customers, contractors, and suppliers promising repeat business. All projects are managed with the same enthusiasm, whether it is one thousand dollars or one million dollars. Prompt payment is always made to suppliers as well as subcontractors ensuring that respect and appreciation is mutual.
For years Contractors have been grouping Exterior Insulating Finishing Systems (EIFS) and Stucco together with the drywall package. In order to better serve our clients, M.L. Jones Exterior Finishes, L.L.C. was formed providing quality installations in EIFS, Stucco, Plaster, and Synthetic Stone. The Exterior Finishes company provides the same professional management and expertise our clients have grown to expect from M.L. Jones. The management team is comprised of leaders with years of experience in the trade. M.L. Jones Exterior Finishes, L.L.C. is setting a new standard of professionalism in the EIFS / Stucco Industry.
M.L. Jones is committed to training their workforce. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship and the National Center for Construction Education and Research, the company has created it's own In-House Apprenticeship Program. Currently our program is the only Registered Apprenticeship program for open shop Carpentry in the State of Oklahoma. This company is setting a standard for providing formal training in our trade, not only for the benefit of the company, but for our employees.
Being a family owned business, employees are treated as people, not expendables. Established employees are offered the highest quality fortune 500 benefits: Health, vision, dental, along with AFLAC. The company decided to take it a step further in 2008 and offer a substantial matching 401k plan. M.L. Jones is now one of the leaders in benefits for employees in their industry.
Every year since its inception M.L. Jones has grown offering more jobs as well as job security for its current employees. We are proud of our company and the accomplishments we have made in growth and safety. Ideas and programs are always in the works to ensure our future in the industry.
