ASID Indiana Visits Kimball Office & National Office Furniture in Jasper,IN

Last week ASID Indiana visited Kimball Office and National Office Furniture in Jasper, IN.  I had suggested this trip after my training there in July of last year.  I was impressed by the facilities, the people, and the philosophies of the company and I knew others would be too.  Kimball International is a world class furniture manufacturer and we are lucky to have it right in our back yard.

Welcome to Kimball

Our day went by quickly.  We toured the Kimball Office showroom, had a lovely boxed lunch while attending a CEU about social media, toured one of the seating factories, and ended the day with a tour of the National showroom.

Alibia DeVente led our CEU about social media.  Let me tell you, she is a social media guru!  This goes way beyond what you ought to post on facebook or twitter.  Check out the course description for “Social Media for Professional Development”  here:

Time to Get Down to Business…..Environments

Back in June 2011, I started at Business Environments in Evansville, IN as an interior designer and sales associate. It’s been a whirlwind for sure. I learn something new every day. I’m thinking that it’s about time I start sharing the knowledge. So, from here on, I declare a new purpose for my blog:

To become a source of information about commercial furniture and interiors!

Stay tuned!
