In 1872 a paper company named Kimberly-Clark was established in Wesconsin Fox River Valley. During their second century Kimberly- Clark made a business decision to focus on a “higher-margin consumer products” rather than paper. Their first entry to disposable diapers market, was created by Proctor & Gamble pampers brand, which was an advance. In 1978, Kimberly-Clark tried again but this time it was called Huggies diapers. Many consumer at the time were still using cloth at the time so they immediatly “flocked” to Huggies. In 1985, Huggies was considered the lead of their category for the first time in history. It has been considered the number one selling diaper since 1993.
