Yupo Corp. America (Chesapeake, VA) has purchased the in-mold label and non-label specialty paper businesses from Kimberly-Clark Corp. This follows Yupo's December purchase of Kimberly-Clark's direct thermal paper business. The company's products, formerly available under Kimberly-Clark's Kimdura brand, will now be available under the Yupo brand synthetic paper.

The buyout will extend Yupo's reach from the commercial-printing industry to the technical papers market. The company has been supplying the base sheet for Kimberly-Clark's Kimdura brand for 30 years.
