TP's usual cylindrical tube enables the roll, when pulled, to roll easily. But Kimberley-Clark have reinforced the 'tube' by sticking together several layers of the tissue. which cannot be used. The tube also loses shape, so the TP doesn't co-operate when pulled. Not much fun when one thinks about it, really, sitting there..

At least you'll have something to think about when you get stuck there with nothing to read

I think it's more about scaling down and cutting operating costs. Operating a tube making machine cuts into profits and also takes up space at the factory.
