CMPC To Import South American Diapers.
Chilean disposable baby diaper producer Compania Manufacturera de
Papeles Y Cartones (CMPC), Laja, Chile, will return to supplying the
Chilean diaper market with products imported from its manufacturing
plants in Peru, Uruguay and Argentina. Additionally, the facilities in
Peru and Uruguay will become the supply bases for CMPC's new
"Babysec" brand diaper line. According to NONWOVENS INDUSTRY
South American correspondent Freddy Gustavo Rewald, the move is
reportedly a result of the end of a separation with CMPC's parent
company Prosan, which distributed "Pampers" and
"Babysan" diapers for Procter & Gamble, Cincinnati, OH, in
Argentina and Chile. During the separation, a condition in the contract
forbade CMPC to sell diapers in Chile for three years.
