The firm’s new division provides service, maintenance and parts for steam turbines, reciprocating, centrifugal and screw compressors, integral engines, and centrifugal pumps across a broad range of industries.
ARLINGTON, TX (January 25, 2023) – Kinley Construction announced it has launched Kinley Advanced Technical Services (KATS), a service, maintenance, and parts division for rotating equipment.
KATS offers solutions to multiple industries and works in tandem with Kinley’s aviation, railroad, energy, and government divisions. The division has established a regional headquarters in Wellsville, NY, and brought new jobs to the region by re-opening a plant which was closed by a company who performed similar work there in 2020.
“As a family and company with deep roots in Western New York, we’re elated to re-open this facility to serve the oil, gas and power generation markets and drive new job growth in Allegany County. This aligns with our expansion goals and enables us to take advantage of some of the best people and talent in the country—something we’ve been doing for over 100 years in this region,” said Jimmy Kinley, CEO of Kinley Construction.
Kinley Construction’s current Chief Operating Officer, Mark Vitale, will also serve as President of KATS. Vitale has over 20 years of operations, supply chain, engineering, design, and safety experience with multiple manufacturing organizations.
“I’m tremendously excited about the opportunity and niche KATS fills for rotating equipment,” said Vitale. “For key industries, including Kinley Construction customers, KATS is meeting a critical need that’s not widely available today,” he added.
Vitale tapped former colleague and executive Ron Fox to head up sales and business development for KATS. Fox stated, “This is an outstanding opportunity to grow a highly needed service in the industrial marketplace. I’m excited to join KATS and be part of Kinley Construction, who has had an outstanding reputation in industrial construction for over 110 years.”
