Mill operator outlook ‘upbeat’

The American company which operates the Kimberly-Clark Australia Millicent Mill has an upbeat outlook on its world-wide performance.

“I’m pleased to close the first half of the year with another quarter of excellent execution by our teams who delivered strong organic sales growth, with increases in all our segments. Our growth strategy is working,” Kimberly-Clark Corporation chairman Mike Hsu said.

“Our results also reflect ongoing market volatility and significant input cost inflation.

“We continue to be thoughtful with our response to inflation, focusing on providing value to our consumers while leveraging price and cost discipline to mitigate macro headwinds for margin improvement over time.

“As we manage our business prudently in the near-term, we’re committed to investing in our people, brands and capabilities to ensure we continue to be well positioned to deliver balanced and sustainable growth over the long-term.”
