Koehler Paper in Oberkirch is taking advantage of the summer period to carry out necessary work on its three paper machines, its power plant, and its infrastructure. In addition to maintenance tasks, it is also planning a number of improvements so that when the machines are started up again in mid-August it will be able to continue producing premium paper for the international market. "It is not possible to carry out major works on these complex machines during production. As these machines normally run in continuous operation, these types of stoppages are necessary to ensure that our technology is always up to date,” says Hartmut Felsch, Mill Director at the Koehler Paper site in Oberkirch.
As Kimberly-Clark celebrates 150 years of providing Better Care for a Better World, the Kimberly-Clark Foundation announced that it will honor this milestone anniversary by awarding three $150,000 grants to global nonprofit organizations that are working to improve the well-being of people around the world.
Since its inception in 1952, the Foundation has provided over $440 million in financial support to targeted causes that align with the company’s social impact goals.
Kimberly-Clark employees selected the grant recipients via online voting from a list of nonprofit organizations that focus their work on the priority areas of the company’s brands and the Kimberly-Clark Foundation. The awardees are:
*Water.org has positively transformed more than 45 million lives around the world with access to safe water or sanitation;
*She’s the First has worked with grassroots organizations to make sure girls everywhere are educated, respected and heard; and
*Project HOPE has provided nurses and midwives with the skills they need to save the lives of women and babies around the world.
