Kimball International is a leading omnichannel commercial furnishings company with deep expertise in the Workplace, Health, and Hospitality markets. We combine our bold entrepreneurial spirit, a history of craftsmanship, and today’s design-driven thinking alongside a commitment to our culture of caring and lasting connections with our customers, shareholders, employees, and communities.
For over 70 years, our brands have seized opportunities to customize solutions into personalized experiences, turning ordinary spaces into meaningful places. Our family of brands includes Kimball, National, Etc., Interwoven, Kimball Hospitality, D’style and Poppin.
Our story started in 1950 as an upstart company with a vision to be more. That vision became the foundation that guides us today and inspires the culture we cultivate.
As humans, we relentlessly search for meaning. And since long before the first Kimball-built cabinet rolled out of production, people have been finding that meaning in the spaces we shape into places - places that build communities, form connections, and develop a sense of belonging. But it’s not enough.
We have an itch to do more - to grow, learn and seek something new. While change requires embracing the unknown, we know that only by breaking out of our own worlds can we make a better one. And at Kimball International, we bring this promise to life with every product we create.
That’s why we build heart into everything we make and do. Why we give each other the room to discover our best and bring out the best in others. From shop floor to showroom, we’ve always crafted with an eye to the future. Helping every life our products touch to not just stage moments; but seize them. We believe that we can do more than just search for meaning. We can empower people to unlock their potential and bring it to life. Because we dare to be makers of possibility.
A unique portfolio of brands, with a commitment to craftsmanship and insights-driven inspiration. All to help you create inspirational spaces for working, healing, learning, hospitality and home.
Since our humble beginnings in 1950, our Guiding Principles have always been a constant reminder of why we are in business, who we are, and who we serve. These are the foundational blocks that Kimball International was built on and they continue to serve as a guide to ensure we are aligned with our commitment of always improving and moving forward. For our customers, our people, and our shareholders.
In July 1974, The Jasper Corporation changed its name to Kimball International, in part because of the strength and reputation of the Kimball brand name. The company made its initial public offering (IPO) of 500,000 shares of common stock in September 1976, becoming a publicly-held company and trading on the NASDAQ Exchange under the ticker symbol KBALB.
