Rob Batstone, Plant Director at Kimberly-Clark, lives in Milnthorpe

After working for a number of blue-chip companies in the UK, Rob is delighted to take over the reins at Kimberly-Clark in Barrow.


Rob is planning to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in the county with wife Rebecca and their son, Matthew.

“I have a real connection to the Lake District,” he said. “I’ve started mountain biking and my son likes it, too, so hopefully we’ll do more of that here.

“There’s so many things for families to do in Cumbria with the Roxy Cinema in Ulverston, Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and museums in Barrow.

“We’re introducing Matthew to different things and different people, and living in Cumbria gives him the best start in life to explore. He already looks really happy here.

“For anyone considering a relocation to Cumbria, I’d advise you to come here and have a look - you’ll be hugely impressed.”
