Kimberly-Clark Australia Announces Closure of Ingleburn Mill

Today, Kimberly-Clark Australia informed employees at its Ingleburn Mill in Sydney of its plan to cease operations at the facility towards the end of July 2019, as part of its Global Restructuring Program. The closure will impact up to 220 roles.

At this time the company is focused on the wellbeing of employees and their families, and providing them with the support they need now and in the months ahead.

All affected employees who leave Kimberly-Clark will be paid their full legal entitlements and redundancy pay, which is above the national redundancy provisions. In addition, outplacement assistance and counselling will be provided.

Going forward, production will move to Kimberly-Clark’s facilities in Asia, enabling faster access to the latest research and engineering advancements in nappies and pants.  

Kimberly-Clark Australia remains committed to providing consumers in Australia and New Zealand with the highest quality products to meet their needs. Products and innovations will continue to be designed by a local product development team, and guided by a deep understanding of local consumer insights.

Kimberly-Clark will continue to locally manufacture Kleenex, VIVA and Kimberly-Clark Professional products at its Millicent Mill in South Australia.
