JASPER — Kimball International, headquartered in Jasper, will acquire Poppin Inc., a commercial furniture company.
According to a news release, the move is part of "plans to accelerate its business into the future with the next phase of the Kimball International strategy, Connect 2.0."
Poppin designs fresh and clever commercial furniture that is made to mix, match and scale in today’s modern office and work-from-home environments. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in New York City, it has about 100 employees. Poppin has combined its eCommerce platform with a dedicated salesforce and network of five showrooms to rapidly become one of the industry’s leading disruptors, serving small- to medium-sized businesses and selling direct to consumers at Poppin.com.
"Kimball International’s deep industry and operational expertise combined with Poppin’s direct and digitally native platform uniquely positions us in the evolving commercial furnishings marketplace," according to a Kimball press release.
“The addition of Poppin to the Kimball International family provides us with a meaningful growth engine that aligns with our recently-launched Connect 2.0 Strategy and with our longer term vision to create a leading omnichannel commercial furnishings design powerhouse," said Kimball CEO Kristie Juster.
The company’s focus will be on accelerating both businesses and on preserving what is already working well.
Poppin headquarters will remain in New York City, where its founders and management team will continue to lead and grow the business.
