Company Description
Kimball Electronics was established in 1961 as the Jasper Electronics Manufacturing Company to build electronic organs for our then parent company, Jasper Corporation. Jasper Corporation later became Kimball International. During the late 1960's contract manufacturing began with the first Industrial contract from General Electric Appliances of Louisville, KY. As the electronics industry evolved, and Kimball expanded, Kimball Electronics did as well.

During the 1980's we became focused solely on contract electronic manufacturing services and expanded into the Automotive, Medical, and Public Safety markets and eventually became known as Kimball Electronics Group.
