Kimberly Clark Plans £40 Million Investment at its Flint Mill

Kimberly Clark planned £40 million investment at its Flint mill that will secure nearly 200 jobs and create 40 new roles. The company has told Business Post that the success of the site in Flintshire has led to the investment in North Wales to meet the growing demand for Huggies baby wipes across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. This will see £40 million spent at the Flint mill to double the production of baby wipes from the site. It will see annual production go from one billion wipes to 2 billion once the investment has been made.

Class Action Alleges Kimberly-Clark Corp. of Violating Safety Standards

A class-action lawsuit alleges that Kimberly-Clark Corp. failed to meet industry standards, thereby subjecting patients and healthcare providers to deadly diseases such as Ebola. The lawsuit alleges that Kimberly-Clark Corp. marketed its gowns as having the high level of liquid barrier protection possible. That supposedly made the gowns safe with respect to the transmission of bodily fluids that could contain deadly diseases. The lawsuit alleges that Kimberly-Clark has known for some time that the gowns failed industry tests that revealed the gowns allowed liquid and bacterial and viral pathogens to penetrate the gowns, placing healthcare professionals and patients at considerable risk. The lawsuit alleges that the company marketed the gowns as being safe despite being aware of their flaws.
