In 1945 Hinkle formally began its highway construction business.

Hinkle Contracting is based out of Paris, Kentucky and services a large part of the Southeast. The company specializes in aggregates asphalt and construction and paving services. In 1942 Hinkle Contracting Corporation was officially founded when Buckner Hinkle realized the need for a general contractor in the city of Paris, Kentucky to help with general construction needs on farms in the area. In August of 2014, Summit completed the acquisition of Buckhorn Materials, which expands Hinkle’s footprint into South Carolina.  The company is run today by President Larry Winkleman who took over for Tom Hinkle, Buckner’s grandson, in June of 2015. Hinkle Contracting operates 16 asphalt plants and 17 quarries across Kentucky.
