Name That Com­pany

Austin American-Statesman Sunday - - PERSONAL FINANCE EXTRA -

I trace my roots back to 1872, when I started the first pa­per mill in Wis­con­sin. I in­tro­duced Ko­tex nap­kins in 1920 and Kleenex in 1924. To­day, based in Dal­las and sport­ing a mar­ket value re­cently top­ping $40 bil­lion, I’m a con­sumer prod­ucts gi­ant, with more than 40,000 em­ploy­ees world­wide and brands such as De­pend, Poise, Lit­tle Swim­mers, Viva and Pull-Ups. Five of my brands — Hug­gies, Scott, Kleenex, Cot­tonelle and Ko­tex — each gen­er­ate more than $1 bil­lion in an­nual sales. Al­most a quar­ter of the world’s pop­u­la­tion buys one or more of my prod­ucts each day. Who am I?
