AUSTRALIA (From news reports) -- Kimberly-Clark Australia has announced it will cease operations at its Ingleburn Mill at the end of July.
The company said the closure was part of its global restructuring program.
"Going forward, production will move to Kimberly-Clark facilities in Asia, enabling faster access to the latest research and engineering advancements in nappies and pants," Managing Director of Kimberley-Clark Australia and New Zealand Doug Cunningham said.
The company promised employees would be paid their full entitlements, and redundancy pay with counselling would also be provided.
"At this time our focus is on the wellbeing of employees and their families," Mr Cunningham said in a statement.
The mill had been operating since 1988 and a new $28-million production line was opened in 2013.
Other products manufactured by Kimberly-Clark will continue to be produced locally at the company's Millicent Mill in South Australia.
