Kimberly-Clark (K-C) has boosted its capacity in North America’s bath tissue market after expanding production at its Mobile, Alabama site.

The tissue giant announced a two-year project worth $100m that it said will deliver “improved capacity, greater manufacturing efficiency, and enhanced product quality”.

K-C now employs more than 680 workers at the Mobile site, after it acquired it from Scott Paper Company in 1995.

It produces bath tissue and paper towels under the Scott, Cottonelle, and K-C Professional brand names.

In 2017, the company also announced plans for an on-site, state-of-the-art combined heat-power plant at the facility.

K-C was unable to provide further details of the investment at this time.
