Kimball Hospitality will spend $1 million and create 67 jobs when it opens a furniture manufacturing facility in Henry County, Virginia. Kimball produces furniture for the office and hospitality industries.

"This new operation represents our commitment to enhance Kimball Hospitality's capabilities in pursuit of growth and additional market share. We believe this combination of the area's experience and dedication to excellence, along with our existing global presence and financial strength, will not only support our growth strategy but also add increased value to both new and existing customer relationships," said Jim Thyen, president and CEO of Kimball International.

The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission has offered Kimball $205,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide worker training through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
