Kimberly-Clark gives state formal notice of Neenah layoffs
Kimberly-Clark gave the state formal notice of layoffs in the Fox Valley.
It notified the Department of Workforce Development that 74 employees will lose their jobs at the Neenah Nonwovens Facility, starting with 66 job cuts in the second half of March.
The job losses will continue until the plant's expected closure in May.
As we've reported for a year now, Kimberly-Clark announced in January 2018 it was closing that plant and its Cold Spring Plant in Fox Crossing.
Last month the company agreed to keep the Cold Spring Plant open after accepting a five-year, $28 million deal from the state which saved about 400 jobs.
Kimberly-Clark says the Nonwovens Facility employees may be offered or apply for positions at other Kimberly-Clark locations.
