Kimberly Clark History

Kimberly Clark was founded in the year 1872. The company has been operational for almost 147 years now. The founders of the company were Franklyn C Shattuck, John A Kimberly, Charles B Clark and Havilah Babcock. The company was started with a $42,000 capital. The first business of the company was to operate paper mills. In the year 1888, after one of its paper mills got destroyed, the company had suffered a setback. The mill was again rebuilt with almost five months of intensive labour planning. The company also started to perform rapid expansions as well. In the year 1914, the company had developed cellu-cotton, which was a cotton substitute used by the U.S. Army, during World War I. Almost six years later, the company introduced Kotex, which was a disposable sanitary napkin for women.
