Kimball International was recognized at the Indiana Statehouse by Governor Eric Holcomb as a recipient of the 2016 Governor’s Half Century Award for 67 years of operation and community service in Indiana.
Governor Holcomb awarded 34 Indiana companies with the Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards during today’s ceremony.
Kimball International Chairman of the Board and CEO, Bob Schneider, accepted the award on Kimball’s behalf. “On behalf of our 3,000 plus employees, and especially the 2,400 who work in our Indiana operations, we are truly honored and humbled by this recognition,” he said. “Our community service over the last 67 years was a cornerstone of the guiding principles established by our founder, Arnold Habig, who in 1950, started our company in the southern Indiana town of Jasper. We remain committed to community service and the remainder of those principles to this day at Kimball International.”
