HNI Corporation to acquire Kimball International.
As a long-time dealer of both HNI and Kimball brands, Henricksen is pleased with this announcement. Henricksen looks forward to strengthening its partnerships and providing an even better client experience leading to a brighter future together. The expansion of the HNI portfolio and team with the addition of the Kimball International family of brands including Kimball, National, Etc., Interwoven, David Edward Collection, Poppin, Kimball Hospitality, and D’Style, will position HNI as a more vital, more attractive manufacturing partner for end-users and specifiers alike.
“This acquisition announcement makes clear HNI Corporation’s continued commitment to the contract segment,” said Henricksen’s President and Chief Executive Officer Russell Frees. “This morning’s announcement is great news for Henricksen, our clients, and project partners. Combining these two brands and their product offerings will help us provide clients with the best solutions and experiences as they continue to look for creative alternatives for their spaces. This combination only strengthens Henricksen’s unique and strategic relationship with HNI.”
Henricksen is excited to leverage HNI and Kimball’s complementary product portfolios under an expanded HNI umbrella. This more comprehensive offering, coupled with enhanced manufacturing capabilities, will give Henricksen clients access to more tailored solutions, including robust ancillary, healthcare, and hospitality products, from a single manufacturer.
