Kimberly-Clark To Restart Diaper Line

July 17, 2006

Consumer product giant Kimberly-Clark, Dallas, TX, plans to restart one idle diaper production machine at its Lakeview production facility in Menasha, WI next month. The company will bring back 20 to 25 of the workers it laid off in June as part of a corporate cost reduction initiative, according to a recent report from a local Wisconsin newspaper.

The move is a result of a Huggies diaper promotion, which was more successful than expected. "The product demand is stronger than had been forecast," said company spokesman Dave Dickson. Despite the callback, K-C still plans to follow through with the permanent closure of the mill by the end of 2007, Mr. Dickson said. The workers recalled will work into the early part of 2007.
