Kimberly-Clark – Creating an inspiring environment

Making a splash in the working environment

With significant change underway, Kimberly-Clark Europe wanted to make a positive visual statement around their new strategic ‘Ambition’ in both their head office in Reigate, Surrey and at the Andrex Mill in Northfleet, Essex (UK).

With a VIP visit from the worldwide head office in the U.S. fixed in the diary, we had just three weeks to design, produce, install and transform freshly-built and painted walls at Northfleet Mill. We were asked to make a speedy Ambition splash in key working areas at the Reigate head office  – all without interrupting production!

Bold entrances, engaging spaces

At Reigate we created a bold entrance display, celebrating all European markets and containing a key message from the CEO. We also added vinyls to the walls, reminding people of the key elements within the K-C’s Ambition statement.

At Northfleet, we populated areas throughout the site, from entrance reception signage and pull-up banners to corridors which flowed with a visual timeline of Andrex’s history. Pride points linked with the iconic Andrex puppy peppered employee flow areas, control rooms were decorated in other supporting strategic messages around desired behaviours and accountabilities and even directional signage to the brand new mill machine was given the Andrex treatment!

Leading to further installations

As a result of these installations, we were asked to support other mills around Europe (including France, Italy and the Czech Republic) to bring the Ambition to their working environments.

We were also invited to be involved in the total refurbishment of K-C Europe’s Reigate office, taking the launch of the Ambition to the next stage in creating an environment which will help to inspire K-C people every day.
