Kimberly-Clark Corporation’s high-efficiency filter media has received the 2010 North America Frost & Sullivan Product Leadership of the Year Award. The award recognizes excellence in the development and launch of new products, and Kimberly-Clark was cited for showing “innovation” and HVAC industry leadership.

“As end-users in commercial and institutional facilities become increasingly aware of the importance of indoor air quality, there has been a rise in the demand for high-efficiency filter media in HVAC filters,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Alejandra Lozano. “Kimberly-Clark has responded quickly to this opportunity by introducing a new line of high-efficiency media for HVAC filters that offers high particle capture efficiency throughout the lifetime of the air filter.”
