Kimball International downsizing

Local News

JASPER, Ind. (WEHT) — One of Southwestern Indiana’s largest employers is about to downsize.

Kimball International says it will reduce its workforce in the coming months as part of an overall strategic move from the company. The company is not saying how many positions may be lost, but it says it has already started working with some of the employees affected.

Back in April, Kimball paused operations at six facilities due to an increase in demand for critically needed healthcare products. The company also used existing talent and resources to manufacture Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), for those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kimball promises more details in a conference call with community leaders and media next week.
