JASPER, IN - Kimball Hospitality, a brand unit of Kimball International Inc., has been recertified to the requirements of Chain-of-Custody by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). 

Kimball Hospitality is a global contract manufacturer that specializes in proprietary and custom designed furnishings for the hotel, casino, and resort industries. The company said, FSC Chain-of-Custody certification is an assurance that wood-based materials used in its products come from forests that meet stringent environmental, social and economic standards. It is the path taken by raw materials from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution.

Kimball Hospitality first achieved FSC Chain-of-Custody certification in 2007, allowing it to sell furniture made to FSC-compliant standards by its registered subcontractors. The new and updated scope of Kimball's FSC certification further enables the company to purchase and store FSC materials, such as lumber, veneer, and panels, and to manufacture and store FSC furniture at the Kimball Hospitality's U.S. production facility.
