Disposable Towelette Manufacturer Relocates California Headquarters

June 7, 2010
Diamond Wipes plans to grow its work force by 5%.

Diamond Wipes International, a manufacturer of hot and cold disposable wet wipes, announced that it has moved from its Ontario, Calif., manufacturing facility to a new plant in Chino, Calif.

Starting today, Diamond Wipes will be operating in the 131,000-square-foot Chino facility, which has 30% more manufacturing space than its previous plant, according to the company. The company also has a manufacturing plant in Bucyrus, Ohio.

As part of a companywide 5% increase in its employment ranks, Diamond Wipes said it will be adding more production lines at the new facility, which will produce roughly 3 million towelettes a day. The company attributes its growth to its private label and contract packaging business.

We outgrew our last location and are very excited about the new facility, said Eve Yen, president of Diamond Wipes International. The new facility allows for future expansion and environmentally friendly options, such as solar panels. An added bonus is that the new facility is closer and easier to access for the majority of our employees.
