ROSWELL, GA — Kimberly-Clark Professional
has undertaken a series of improvements and investments in its San Antonio, Texas, facility to meet the growing global demand for its skin care products and other hygiene offerings, according to a press release.
The upgrades have enabled the facility to increase production of its Kleenex
brand instant hand sanitizers, foam, lotion and other skin cleansers as well as a groundbreaking new surface disinfecting product, which was launched in the U.S. in July, the release stated.
"As people have become more aware of the important role that hand hygiene products play in preventing the spread of infections, such as H1N1 and other strains of influenza, we have responded by accelerating our investments in our San Antonio facility," said Josh Renihan, North American skin care business leader for Kimberly-Clark Professional.
"Global demand for our skin care products is expected to increase in the coming years. We are making these investments to meet customer needs today as well as tomorrow," Renihan added.
