But the bulk of the jobs the company has finished in York County are not about the limelight. They’re about an entrepreneur with a bold idea, or an underutilized property, or a local business looking to grow.
Whether it’s creating a space for York County residents to unwind and connect, like at the newly remodeled York Blue Moon, or breaking ground on a project that can change the economics of our community, like the Yorktowne Hotel, Kinsley is looking at the bigger picture for building York.
“We’ve always tried to take our strengths and apply them to help small businesses,” Jon says. “They’re the backbone and the engine that’s fueling York’s growth.”

‘It’s where we grew up’
Kinsley Construction has completed more than 8,000 projects in York County over its 55-year history. Restaurants and museums, schools and libraries: look closely on your way to work tomorrow, and you can see them.
You can feel Kinsley in the community.
“This is where we grew up, and it’s where our kids and grandkids are going to grow up,” Jon says. “We feel you need to give back to the community you call home.”
For over 800 of Kinsley’s 1,400+ employees, that means living, working and playing in York. It means philanthropy and volunteerism that touches more than 100 nonprofits across the county. Soon, it will mean even closer ties, as the company updates an East Princess Street property that will house an expanding Kinsley building division.
That will put the engine for downtown’s continued revival right where it belongs: in the heart of the city.
“We’re very excited to bring more of our people around downtown,” Jon says. “We’re looking at this as a way to allow for growth for the next 10 years or more.”
