K-C Continues Diaper Plant Consolidation

May 31, 2007

Half of production to be cut at Lakeview site.

Kimberly-Clark will phase out half the remaining production at its Lakeview diaper plant in Menasaha, WI by August 31, according to executives. "We'll close half of the remaining operations there by the end of August, with the final closure by the middle of December," said David Dickson, company spokesman. About 280 people still work at the Lakeview plant, which once employed as many as 500. Mr. Dickson did not know how many of those people will still be working at the plant at the end of August.
   
K-C announced in March 2006 that it would close the plant, which manufactures Huggies diapers, by the end of 2007 as part of a consolidation of its American baby and childcare operations into three facilities in Beach Island, SC; Paris, TX; and Ogden, UT.
