About Kimball Office
Kimball Office is a design driven, technologically savvy brand, tailoring solutions that provide better workplace, learning & healing environments. For nearly 45 years, Kimball Office has been designing office furniture that is inspiring, productive, and environmentally-responsible.
This is our story.
The humble beginnings of Kimball Office are deeply rooted in Indiana tradition, specifically that of the City of Jasper and the surrounding municipalities and counties, which is that of a German heritage and driven by a passionate pride of self, place, and, ultimately, product. The recognized leader in wood office furniture, Kimball Office has been designing and manufacturing office furniture as a business unit of Kimball International whose beginning dates back to 1950.
In that year, Arnold F. Habig founded a small contract furniture manufacturer of residential furniture and television cabinets called The Jasper Corporation. Throughout the 1950s, a number of steps were taken to strengthen a system of vertical integration, a key factor in Kimball’s long-term success. Vertical integration meant the company was largely self-sufficient in every aspect of wood manufacturing, from raw materials to production to marketing and distribution.
In 1959, the W.W. Kimball company—a century-old piano maker from Chicago, Illinois—was purchased from the last remaining Kimball family heir by The Jasper Corporation. At its peak during the 1960s and 1970s, the company was manufacturing approximately 100,000 pianos and organs per year, remaining true to the piano company’s original sales slogan, “Music For The Millions.” During these peak years, Kimball produced 250 pianos and 150 electronic organs per day.
This success further fueled the growth of The Jasper Corporation into other markets. Based on the quality reputation associated with the Kimball name, the company developed other product lines: office furniture, home furniture, and electronics.
In 1970, the Kimball name was synonymous with pianos and music…but that was about to change. At the beginning of the decade, the company decided to manufacture and market office furniture under the Kimball brand name.
Kimball Office was born and quickly achieved phenomenal success in the marketplace, building a reputation for fine craftsmanship, quality products, and quick in stock delivery.
In our nearly 45 years of producing office furniture, our products have earned numerous awards and honors, been featured on television shows, as well as in movies, and has been utilized in high profile offices across the United States. Kimball Office is focused on integrity, passion, partnership, excellence, and experience—with the intention of carrying these values across the country.
