Gladstone Transfer Limited was started in 1949 by JA(Jack) Kinley and John Ross of Gladstone, Manitoba. Jack became the sole owner of the company in 1952 after buying out John's shares.

In 1973, the second generation of Kinley's returned to Gladstone to settle with his family. Thomas A(Tom) Kinley, returned to Gladstone to see the company incorporated and join his father. Jack passed away in 1979 leaving Tom at the helm. Another son, Ken, came into the business that year to help Tom. In 1996, the third generation, Tom’s son Scott Kinley, came into the business.
Today, both Tom and Scott oversee the day to day operations of the company. Both Kinley's are very proud to have opened their latest venture, a full service truck, RV, and car wash. The new facility will compliment the equipment, keeping it clean, and allowing the company to portray a high level of excellence.
