Production to continue

Production will continue at the Kimberly-Clark Australia Millicent Mill according to the reported remarks of its managing director.

“The opening of our new distribution centre in the outer Melbourne suburb of Ravenall not only underscores KCA’s pursuit of operational excellence, but also reaffirms our unwavering commitment to our customers and consumers, local manufacturing, and the planet,” Belinda Driscoll said.

“With a sharp focus on sustainability and efficiency, the facility will enable us to better respond to the always on demands of Aussie shoppers while at the same time reducing our carbon footprint.

“We remain committed to making further investments that will enhance our supply chain in the years to come.”

Her comments were made at the opening ceremony and have been widely reported.

KCA has closed five of its Australian manufacturing plants in the past 20 years and only the Millicent Mill remains.

It produces toilet paper, facial tissues and paper towels while all other Kimberly- Clark lines like nappies, tampons and incontinence products are imported.

Measuring 23,000 square metres, the Ravenhall distribution centre has rooftop solar panels, electric forklifts and electric charging stations.
