The Kinsley Timeline

1964

Ken Kinsley founded Kinsley Equipment Co, Inc, now Kinsley Group, Inc. (KG), in Springfield, Massachusetts for the purpose of selling, repairing and renting construction/industrial equipment. From the beginning we concentrated on knowledge-selling as our strength. Features and benefits and proper application helped us become a preferred supplier.

1966

Kinsley signed as an exclusive KOHLER® Power Systems distributor for Vermont, one county in New Hampshire and four counties in Western Massachusetts.

1970

Kinsley Equipment pioneered selling self-propelled aerial lifts throughout the Northeast. Though these lifts are now ubiquitous on construction job sites, Ken and his sales team had to overcome other obstacles to develop the market. Our success in this market helped fund our expansion into new markets.

1971

Kinsley headquarters moved to Hartford, Connecticut to better serve our growing customer base in the region.

1984

Kinsley transitioned our business away from a construction supplies business to complete focus on power systems. The company changed its name to Kinsley Power Systems (DBA). The power systems market was expanding rapidly at the time. We also recognized that it was a business model focused on knowledge-selling rather than a commodity price sale.
