WestRock breaks ground on new box plant in Longview, WA

Clayco, a full-service construction company, has celebrated the groundbreaking of WestRock’s new 410,000 sq ft corrugated box plant in Longview, Washington. Located on 23.5 acres, just outside of the Vancouver, Washington metropolitan area, this marks the first collaboration between Clayco and WestRock.

The new building will host a WestRock corrugated manufacturing operation, which will create approximately 40 jobs in Longview, Washington when production begins in the fall of 2023.

“This new plant will enable our team in the region to serve customers even better in the future, with a manufacturing facility that will provide new capabilities and efficiencies,” said David B. Sewell, CEO, WestRock. “We are pleased to invest in a local community that is vibrant and growing.”

“The Cowlitz Economic Development Council is proud to have been a part of assisting WestRock with this innovative expansion,” said Ted Sprague, president, Cowlick County Economic Development Council. “The increase in jobs and new capital investment will serve our community and region well into the future.”
