THROUGH THE YEARS
Building Excellence Since 1973
When L.A. “Jack” Kinnaman founded Kinco Constructors in 1973 he built it around the belief and passion for performing construction work with excellence. Jack grew up in hard-working farming community of Puxico, Missouri where you either learned to farm or learned a trade. At nineteen Jack eloped with the homecoming queen and high school sweetheart, Phyllis. Suddenly faced with supporting a wife his only options were to join the wheat harvest or learn a building trade like his father. Jack chose construction.
After digging trenches for a large power plant project in Palestine, Arkansas Jack decided to attend night school learning civil engineering, surveying, and architecture at Washington University. Jack was soon hired as a project manager at Gust K. Newberg Inc. based in Chicago. Jack and his young family moved to Little Rock, Arkansas in 1968 where he was serving as Project Manager on the new Baptist Medical Center. It did not take long for his family to fall in love with Little Rock, and by the time the project finished, they decided they wanted to make it home.
In 1973 they started Kinco Constructors, and formerly incorporated in 1974. The rest you can say is Our History…
