Kimball Midwest celebrated 100 years in business in 2023.

The company held a series of events to honor its 100th anniversary throughout 2023, including a grand opening celebration for its 142,000 sq ft Newtown Distribution Center, which began operations in late 2022.

The company’s Newtown Distribution Center associates selected Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit organization, as their charitable contribution as part of the community campaign. The organization, founded and led by family members whose loved ones were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, works to protect children from school shootings, violence and other harmful acts.

“Newtown is a tight-knit, family-based community; the tragedy in Sandy Hook was something that affected everyone here and across the nation in a profound way,” stated Newtown Distribution Center manager Tracy Bosley. “To see good come from such a dark place have an impact not only at a local level, but a national level, made choosing Sandy Hook Promise an easy choice for us.”

The Newtown Distribution Center joined existing locations in Dallas; Reno; and Savannah, GA, as well as the corporate headquarters in Columbus, OH.

The Kimball Company was founded in Cleveland in 1923. In 1984 it joined with Midwest Motor Supply, which had been founded in Columbus, in 1933, forming Kimball Midwest.

From its roots as a regional automotive supplier, the company has experienced consistent growth, with sales going from $1 million in 1983 to more than $400 million in 2022.

Kimball Midwest primarily serves its customers through a network of more than 1,200 sales representatives across the continental U.S.

Columbus-based Kimball Midwest is a family-owned business that distributes MRO hardware supplies. Web:
