Kimberly-Clark Corp., Dallas, TX, has approved $30 million to expand and improve its nonwovens manufacturing facility in Hendersonville, NC. The plant produces nonwoven materials for the company’s North American adult and feminine care brands.

The two-year project will expand the plant’s production capacity and efficiency, and is expected to add 14 new jobs while maintaining current employment, the company said.
