Kimball Midwest, a Columbus, Ohio-based industrial distributor, on Wednesday announced it 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 will sit on 41 acres and allow Kimball Midwest to “provide enhanced service to its customers throughout the northeastern United States,” the company said in a release. 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,” said Kimball Midwest President and CEO Pat McCurdy. “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.”
