You may be familiar with Kimberly-Clark, as they are a company popular for making common hygiene products like Kleenex and Cottonelle. Now, they are expanding their location in Corinth, Mississippi. This may be one of their biggest investments, as they are investing $140 million toward the project. This will go toward updating technology and equipment, as well as adding 150,000 square feet to their current facility. In addition, the expansion will also create 33 new jobs for the area.
