Rep. Rohrkaste Statement Regarding Kimberly-Clark Announcement
Madison, WI – State Representative Mike Rohrkaste (R-Neenah) issued the following statement in regards to the recent Kimberly-Clark announcement concerning its Fox Cities operations.
“Today’s difficult announcement by Kimberly-Clark comes on the heels of the company’s announcement last week that outlined its global restructuring plan which will cut over 5,000 jobs and close 10 facilities worldwide.
“I am committed to working with Kimberly-Clark, and both local and state agencies to ensure that those individuals and families affected by the recent announcement have the resources and assistance they need moving forward. Kimberly-Clark is a vital part of the Neenah community and the company has emphasized that they will continue to be heavily invested in our area. Also, Neenah will remain the headquarters of Kimberly-Clark’s North American Consumer Business.
“The Fox Cities community and the state of Wisconsin stand ready to meet this challenge and assist those affected by this announcement. If constituents have any questions or concerns, please reach out to my office and we will be ready to assist you.”
