New manufacturing lines for Huggies baby wipes and diaper pants were launched at Kimberly-Clark’s Tuas Plant in June.
The multi-million dollar investment brings Kimberly-Clark’s total investment in Singapore to S$400m. The company first set up its Singapore office in 1981, and then established its ASEAN office and Asia Pacific headquarters in the country in 2012.
The new manufacturing lines bring in advanced and automated technologies for the production of Huggies brand baby wipes and diaper pants, which are exported to 11 other countries in the region, including China and Australia. The Asia Pacific is Kimberly-Clark’s biggest international region by revenue.
