July 24, 2010

Conway plant will receive $25 million investment.

Kimberly-Clark will invest $25 million to expand its Conway, AK facility, which currently makes feminine hygiene and other paper products.

The investment will reportedly allow the company to increase production capacity of goods that are not currently made in the U.S. It will also modernize facility technology and improve existing products made in Conway.

Facility manager John Pownall said that the company expects to create more than 40 jobs. The announcement came on the 40th anniversary of the company’s presence in Conway.

“Kimberly-Clark was the Conway Development Corp.’s first major tenant in the Conway Industrial Park. It is encouraging to see yet another Conway manufacturer choosing to invest and expand,” said Bill Adkisson, chairman of the Conway Development Corporation.
