Columbus, Ohio – July 21, 2021 – Kimball Midwest will open its fifth distribution center in the first half of 2022 when it begins operations at a 142,000-square-foot facility in Newtown, Connecticut.
The building, located on 41 acres, will allow Kimball Midwest to provide enhanced service to its customers throughout the northeastern United States. The site was an electrical components factory for Hubbell Inc. until it closed in 2019.
“We look forward to opening our first distribution center in the northeast,” Kimball Midwest President and CEO Pat McCurdy said. “This site will position the best sales team in the industry to provide next-day delivery to our current east coast customers and will bring the Kimball Midwest Experience to even more customers around the region. Additionally, we will bring jobs to the Newtown area upon opening.”
Kimball Midwest primarily serves its customers through a network of more than 1,000 sales representatives across the continental United States. In 2020, it was listed as the 35th largest industrial supply company in the nation by Industrial Distribution. In the last year, it has been honored among the 50 Best Companies to Sell For by Selling Power magazine as well as Training magazine’s Training Top 100.
