KMB - Kimberly Clark


Kimberly-Clark (NYSE: KMB) was launched as a paper mill company in 1872 by John A. Kimberly, Charles B. Clark, Havilah Babcock and Franklyn C. Shattuck. The company incorporated in 1928.

Today, now far from its paper mill operations beginnings, Kimberly-Clark Corporation is a manufacturer and marketer of hygiene and health products across the globe.

Kimberly-Clark has four major business lines: Personal Care, Consumer Tissue, K-C Professional & Other, and Health Care, and markets its products by direct sales, wholesalers and distributors.

Acquisitions include S-K Corporation, Taiwan Scott Paper Corporation, Linostar, Klucze, Baylis Medical Company's pain management business and Jackson Products.

Jackson products is unique in that it detours to other products related to the construction industry. Things like work zone safety, protective equipment and welding safety products. An obvious move toward the male demographic.

The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
