The 1800's-1909: Kinley Tanneries, Timber, Oil and Gas

Kinley family-owned and operated businesses date back to the mid-1800's when Adam Kinley started tannery-manufacturing and timber harvesting in western New York.


In the late 1800's, oil was discovered in the region and Adam Kinley's son, William, formed Kinley Oil Company in 1909.  Kinley Oil Company continued producing oil and gas in western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania for the next 80 years. 

The Kinley family extended their operations in the early 1980s by establishing oil and gas operations in Oklahoma and Texas. At the same time, they began industry-related construction projects across the U.S.  This was spear-headed by J.L. Kinley, the fifth generation of Kinley family to own and manage the business. 

J.L. and his father, Jim Kinley, purchased and developed an existing fuel terminal in Omaha, NE. The terminal supplied jet fuel to the Offutt Air Force Base. This led to J.L. constructing, owning and managing additional fuel terminals in California, Idaho, North Dakota and Nebraska. These projects and construction crews led to the formation of Kinley Construction. 

Now known as Kinley Construction Group (KCG), the company is headquartered in Arlington, TX and led and managed by the sixth-generation of Kinley family ownership, Jimmy Kinley and his sister Katherine Kinley. The company  is a nationally-recognized, premier general contractor with deep knowledge and experience in industrial and mechanical fueling.


KCG specializes in industrial projects related to fuel, energy and transportation throughout the United States, Canada and other parts of North America, focusing primarily on hydrocarbon products including crude oil, ethanol, liquid propane gas, natural gas, condensate, jet fuel, diesel and gasoline.


Since its inception, Kinley Construction Group has completed thousands of fueling and fueling-related projects at major airports, railroad facilities, fuel pipeline terminals, crude oil loading/unloading terminals, Department of Defense facilities, energy facilities, and waste water treatment plants. Many of our employees have self-performed and/or managed a variety of projects throughout the country. 

Kinley is also a leader in Design/Build, where Kinley takes a project from the concept phase through the construction to the system startup. Design/Build has been an expertise of Kinley since 2003, when ethanol was distributed by rail and Kinley constructed hydrocarbon loading and offloading facilities across the U.S.


With a pool of internal and external industry professionals and an average Kinley employee tenure of over 15 years, the firm has a wealth of experience and resources to leverage in delivering an exceptional customer experience in industrial fueling projects.
