Essity Expands Production at Kentucky Factory

November 30, 2020

Essity recently expanded the manufacturing capabilities of its Harrodsburg, Kentucky, production facility.

The company installed a new production line for its Tork PeakServe Continuous Hand Towels at the plant and announced plans to add a second line by the first quarter of 2021. The new lines will help Essity meet an increased demand for its Tork products.

“Amid the pandemic, we’ve seen how Tork PeakServe is helping businesses support handwashing, which is critical to preventing the spread of COVID-19,” said Don Lewis, Essity president of professional hygiene. “The introduction of these two production lines marks an important step in Essity’s response to an increased demand for effective hygiene solutions and demonstrates our continued commitment to helping customers meet a new hygiene standard.”
