The current proprietors of the business John Barry Jones and Gwyn Jones are the sons of Elias Jones who started a bus business in 1968. This business was initially involved in school contracts and private hire work using mini buses. However larger vehicles were obtained as the business grew. In 1979 the four coaches of Phillips of Rhostyllen were purchased. In 1985 the vehicles and routes of M A Evans were purchased. In about 1995 the original business of E Jones and Sons began a split. Initially both parts of the business traded as E Jones and Sons but later the other business became D Jones and Son but this business ceased in 2017.

A feature of the firm operated by Barry and Gwyn is the use of personalised registration numbers and the use of the name of the village of Rhosllanerchrugog on the coaches. (Spelt in the traditional manner with a single 'n'). The firm today is mainly engaged in school contracts and private hire work.
