Chester county-based Kimberly-Clark to receive $150M upgrade

Manufacturing company Kimberley-Clark announced that their Chester County, PA-based plant will receive $150 million in updates.

The facility, which currently employs 600 workers, will be receiving a natural gas-fired power plant and infrastructure upgrades. The updates are expected to be completed within the next three years.

“Kimberly-Clark continues to fulfill its commitment to reinvesting in our U.S. business,” said Adrian Poretti, vice president of supply chain for Kimberly-Clark North America in a Philadelphia Business Journal article. “So far this year, we’ve announced investments in three of our North American mills, including here in Chester, making important improvements to support our overall growth.”

The plant produces numerous products, including Scott toilet paper, Huggies, and Kleenex, all of which gets distributed throughout North America.

Kimberly-Clark benefits from being based in Greater Philadelphia because of its strategic location at the heart of the northeast corridor, which is globally connected through robust infrastructure, the region’s extensive supply chain, and distribution networks.
