As the world marks International Women’s Day, Kimberly Clark has invested $100 million state-of-the-art diaper manufacturing facility, specifically, in Ikorodu area of Lagos state, Nigeria’s commercial capital.
The United States is proud to be one of the largest foreign investors in Nigeria as leading American brands expand their investment portfolio, providing job opportunities and supporting economic diversification objectives.
Delivering remarks at the commissioning of the facility, the U.S. Consul General Claire Pierangelo noted that Nigeria is a critical market for American companies and improving the investment climate would result in more milestones for both countries.
Pierangelo explained that the commissioning of the new facility showcases the commitment of the United States to deepen its trade and investment ties with Nigeria. She commended Kimberly-Clark for its investment in Nigeria and the company’s contribution to improving hygiene and the health of the people of Nigeria.
The Ikorodu facility will produce diapers under the Huggies brand name, with the primary goal of producing quality Nigerian-made products for mothers and babies across the country.
Kimberly-Clark is an American brand with its headquarters in Texas, United States and has a presence around the world manufacturing hygiene and medical products. It began operations in Nigeria in 2012, with the introduction of Huggies® diapers into the Nigerian market in 2015 and Kotex® sanitary pads in 2019.
