Who We Are
Kimball Midwest has been family owned and operated since our inception in 1923, and it is what drives our mission and our values. In line with our family values, our mission is to develop a “partnership in performance” with every employee and customer nationwide.
Being a part of our sales force means extending that partnership to our customers by developing strong relationships in order to identify the needs of their business. We make it easy to offer solution for customers’ needs with an extensive catalog of more than 45,000 in-stock maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) products. By spending at least 80% of our inventory dollars on U.S.A.-made products, we demonstrate our support of American workers and our commitment to quality. With an industry-leading fill rate of 99%, our strategically located distribution centers in Ohio, Georgia, Texas, and Nevada are able to get our customers what they need when they need it, with 80% of orders delivered next day.
Our success is a direct result of our quality people. Our Sales Force and internal staff work hand-in-hand to make sure our end-user customers are taken care of. We believe in the Two Customer philosophy, which is built around supporting both our end user customers and our Sales Force with unparalleled customer service. Building strong relationships with customers and employees is vital to our success. Our dynamic sales growth is a result of that - we have increased from $1 million in 1983 to over $240 million today. Our future success is directly related to working with individuals that value quality in their work and in their relationships. Will you join us?
