HOUSTON – Jimmie Lanphier co-founded CBS Rental and Supply on Jul. 20, 1965 in Corpus Christi. His grandson is Jason Herin, president and CEO.

     CBS Rental and Supply originally started as a construction supply company, selling construction materials to the Corpus Christi construction market. 
    It wasn’t until Herin’s father, Buddy, purchased CBS Rental and Supply in 1979 that the company formed the equipment rental segment of the business.
