Millicent mill emerges as state’s largest manufacturing site

AN UNWANTED status will come the way of the Kimberly-Clark Australia Millicent Mill today.

The local plant has over 400 employees and contractors and it will become one of the largest single-site manufacturing enterprises in South Australia due to the closure of the GM Holden car plant in suburban Adelaide.

Around 800 jobs will be lost at the Elizabeth car-making plant while employment levels are set to fall at associated component makers.

Like the KCA Millicent Mill, the GM Holden factory was built in the late 1950s and was part of the massive post-war industrial expansion in SA.
