K-C Delays Close of Nonwovens Plant

August 1, 2006

Kimberly-Clark Corp. will keep its Neenah, WI nonwovens plant open until the end of 2008, two years longer than previously planned due to greater-than-expected demand for its baby and child care products, which is expected to continue. In March, the company said it would close or sell the site, which employs 165 workers, by the end of 2006 as part of a corporate streamlining effort. The decision to keep the nonwovens center open comes after a successful diaper promotion led K-C to restart a diaper line at a plant in Menasha, WI. This plant is set to close in late 2007.
