Kimberly-Clark builds new factory for better service



Following a strategic review of its business model with the objective of increasing presence and further investments in Nigeria in the near future, Kimberly-Clark has announced a decision to build a new factory in the country.

With strong growth in demand for its products from consumers in recent years, the company is opening a new factory with enhanced technology and capabilities to better serve its consumers.

Kimberly-Clark will be closing its current factory in Lagos, Nigeria, in second quarter of 2019, while in the process of building the new factory.

This decision was made regrettably, as 60 permanent employees have been made redundant.

The company remains fully committed to the Nigerian market, where it will expand its commercial team and open an additional office in Lagos during 2019.
According to its Communication Business Partner, Amel Yimer, “Every day, our brands are used by consumers to enhance their health, hygiene and well-being. 

As a respected company with established relationships in Nigeria, we are aware of the impact this closure may have and of our responsibilities towards our workforce.

It is a responsibility we take very seriously and we are working to ensure our employees are supported as much as possible during this difficult time.”
