Determined to offer customers a better value with shorter lead times, National created a brand by successfully delivering products that were on budget and on time. Customers were drawn to our ability to design and develop innovative products, while offering personal support and extraordinary experiences. Today, that foundation still holds true. Our exceptional value, combined with design-driven products, on-time delivery, and our dedication to customer experiences have made us a standout in the furniture industry.
As a unit of Kimball International, we are fortunate to have a rich heritage in wood manufacturing, environmental responsibility, and pride in craftsmanship. Along with our parent company, our values and integrity are demonstrated daily by living our Guiding Principles and creating a culture of caring that establishes us as an employer of choice. “We Build Success” by establishing long-term relationships with customers, employees, suppliers, shareowners. and the communities in which we operate. By nurturing those relationships and making it a priority to do the right thing, we continue to prove that we have the right solutions for any space.
Our Corporate Headquarters is a prime example of how furniture from National can be used in any space. The 50,000 square foot facility, designed by the world renowned Gensler design firm, is full of innovative furniture, progressive work environments, and splashed with whimsy and humor throughout the space. With areas and furniture which help individuals collaborate, learn, interact, and focus, the Headquarters represents how customers can use National’s solutions in their own spaces.
