Newtown, CT Kimball Midwest, a national industrial supplier based in Ohio, will open its fifth distribution center in the first half of 2022 when it begins operations at a 142,000 s/f facility.
The building, located on 41 acres, will allow Kimball Midwest to provide enhanced service to its customers throughout the northeastern United States. The site was an electrical components factory for Hubbell Inc. until it closed in 2019. The sale price was $4.4 million.

Additionally, we will bring jobs to the Newtown area upon opening.”
