Kimberly-Clark Professional Introduces Scott® Coreless JRT® JR. Bath Tissue
Latest in Easy-Maintenance Line of Restroom Products
ROSWELL, Ga. (February 28, 2003) - Kimberly-Clark Professional created excitement in the otherwise mundane world of bath tissue with its 2001 introduction of Coreless Single Roll Bath Tissue. Now, the company brings its coreless innovation to the Jumbo Roll format with a new coreless tissue and dispensing system designed to make restroom maintenance easier.
New SCOTT® Coreless JRT® Jr. Bath Tissue is equivalent in length to six standard rolls of bath tissue. With no hole or cardboard core, it provides 15 percent more tissue and 75 percent less stub roll waste than standard JRT® Jr. tissue.
"Our standard roll coreless tissue provided the business-to-business market with a unique innovation," says Jan Gottesman, Kimberly-Clark Professional. "We think this new Jumbo Roll format will be even more successful and will quickly meet the needs of 'high-capacity' users."
Kimberly-Clark Professional also introduces the new SCOTT® Coreless JRT® E-Z Load Dispensing System for use with the new coreless tissue. Designed to make maintenance easy, the keyless dispensing system can be reloaded with one hand. The tissue roll snaps in quickly and locks securely into place. The dispenser has a 28 percent smaller footprint than the leading standard jumbo roll tissue dispenser and has 80 percent fewer parts.
"This new system represents a whole new approach to restroom maintenance," explains Gottesman. "There are fewer steps, fewer hassles, and fewer headaches with the new SCOTT® Coreless JRT® E-Z Load Dispensing System, as with other Kimberly-Clark Professional easy-maintenance restroom systems."
Those easy-maintenance restroom systems include:
o New LEV-R-MATIC® E-Z Load Hard Roll Towel Dispenser - like the bath tissue dispenser described above, it offers one-handed loading for quick refills. Kimberly-Clark Professional recommends the following roll towels for use with this new dispenser.
o KLEENEX® Hard Roll Towels - help to enhance the image of a restroom with absorbency and softness molded into the towel.
o SCOTT® 1000' Hard Roll Towels - the longest hard roll towel currently available, it provides 25 percent more towel in the same space than a standard 800-foot roll, without sacrificing quality.
o The ALL-N-1 Soap Dispensing System - a disposable dispenser and soap in a single unit that contains up to three times more soap than current 800 mL bag-in-box dispensers. Replacement units easily snap onto mounted brackets.
As with all Kimberly-Clark Professional products, these new easy-maintenance restroom systems come with the No Questions Asked guarantee, which reimburses end-users up to $1,000 worth of free product if the initial product purchased does not meet expectations.
