The Klink legacy began modestly in 1964 with two determined young people, a used dump truck spray-painted green and a job hauling materials for bridge construction along the new Interstate 69 in northeast Indiana. Wayne Klink was the driver and mechanic. His wife Carol was the accountant and assistant mechanic. Together, the young couple spent weekends at their family farm maintaining their International Harvester 1800 and dreaming of a decent life for themselves and their children. Early on, Wayne told a friend that, if he had just nine trucks, he could make a good living for his family. Today, that one truck has grown into The Klink Group of Companies. The Klink Group, recognized as a responsive and highly trusted provider of transportation services, also manufacturers paving grade asphalt cements and environmentally friendly asphalt emulsions as well as a wide variety of other commercial and industrial products encompassing several industries. The Klink Group, consisting of nearly a dozen corporations with multistate operations, employs approximately 400 people and operates nearly 200 top-of-the-line trucks, tractors and trailers. Among the other businesses, The Klink Group operates three asphalt emulsion facilities and four manufacturing corporations. All Klink companies conduct business by the same principles embraced by Wayne and Carol at the very start: honesty, integrity, hard work, promptness, and uncompromising standards. It is The Klink Difference, and it is benefiting projects both large and small across the country.
