Absorbent hygiene products manufacturer Domtar plans to invest $100,000 over the next three years at the Attends facility in Greenville, NC. The company has already invested approximately $20 million in eastern North Carolina over the past two years.
Domtar and its wholly owned subsidiary, Attends Healthcare Products, have operated in Greenville since 1999 and as Attends’ headquarters since 2007. Domtar acquired Attends in 2011 to position the company for an increased share of the growing consumer products market.
“As a wood fiber innovation company with a global sales footprint in pulp, paper and absorbent hygiene products, North Carolina is a big part of our growth story,” says Domtar president and CEO, John Williams. “With a fluff pulp mill and bio-chemical plant in Plymouth, a personal care manufacturing facility in Greenville, as well as our global personal care headquarters in Raleigh, this state is a symbol of Domtar’s past and future working together for long-term prosperity.”
Attends currently employs approximately 300 at the Greenville facility, and the new operations center will create 35 jobs in finance and accounting.
“Domtar has found a perfect fit for its personal care division’s North American operations center right here in Greenville,” says Governor Pat McCrory. “Their expanded presence will strengthen eastern North Carolina’s reputation for having a talented workforce. Domtar can be an example to others of the strong talent pool and attractive quality of life that characterizes Greenville, Pitt County, and all of eastern North Carolina.”
