New company Essity lists on Nasdaq

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

PHILADELPHIA – Essity, a global hygiene and health company, listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm on June 15. The listing follows SCA Group’s decision to split into two independently listed companies: forest products company SCA, and Essity. Essity says it plans to continue to expand on the market growth of the Tork, TENA and JOBST brands. “With the launch of Essity we have a new name and an even stronger sense of purpose—improving well-being by providing leading hygiene and health solutions,” said Don Lewis, president, Professional Hygiene, said. “Our hygiene and health focus will allow us to bring new innovations to market while offering our customers and consumers the insights, knowledge and best practices that can only come from one of the world's leading hygiene companies.” Tork and TENA consumers and customers will begin to see the SCA branding phased out from the hygiene business over the next two years and replaced with new Essity branding.
