Aiming to boost production of bath tissue at its Mobile, AL manufacturing site, personal and health care products maker Kimberly-Clark Corporation announced plans to invest over $100 million in an expansion project at the Alabama facility, a company press release issued last Thursday said.

Projected to reach completion within two years, the effort will increase the site’s manufacturing capacity and efficiency, the company said, as well as improve product quality. The release did not offer specific details on Kimberly-Clark’s plans for the Mobile location.

“The Mobile team is excited about the role we will play in supporting the projected growth of the bath tissue category in North America as a result of this capacity expansion project,” Todd Visscher, the mill manager of the Mobile site, said. “This investment, the commitment of our employees, and the community support will together bolster Mobile Mill’s competitive position within Kimberly-Clark.”

Kimberly-Clark currently has a headcount of 680 at the site, which produces Scott, Cottonelle, and K-C Professional brands of tissue and toilet paper.
