In 1998, still a Halliburton subsidiary, Brown & Root merged with M.W. Kellogg creating KBR, one of the world’s premiere engineering, procurement, construction and services companies. In 2006, KBR separated from Halliburton. The industrial services organization (maintenance, turnarounds, small capital projects) continued operations as KBR Industrial Services Americas.
In July 2015, KBR partnered with Bernhard Capital Partners (BCP), spinning off its Industrial Services Americas division to establish Brown & Root Industrial Services.
KBR continues as a global technology, engineering, procurement and construction company serving the hydrocarbons and government services industries around the globe, through three distinct global businesses: Technology & Consulting, Engineering & Construction, and Government Services.
Brown & Root Industrial Services established its headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The legacy Brown & Root organization became the basis of the new company’s Maintenance Division. Engineering – Capital Construction – Turnaround Services – and Specialty Industrial (soft crafts) services capabilities were quickly added, to meet management’s stated goal of becoming “the most complete plant services organization in the business.”
Brown & Root continues to grow our resources and capabilities to serve the needs of our customers in the chemical/petrochemical, refining, pulp & paper, and agricultural industries across the U. S., Canada, and Mexico.
Forged from the Past. Building the Future.
