WestRock Co has confirmed plans to build a new corrugated box plant in Longview, Washington, to meet the growing demand from regional customers in the Pacific Northwest.
“WestRock’s corrugated packaging business in the Pacific Northwest continues to perform well, with strong relationships with customers in attractive growth markets,” said David Sewell, CEO, WestRock. “Our new corrugated packaging plant will enable our team in this region to serve these customers even better in the future, with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that will provide new capabilities and efficiencies for our customers.”
The new plant will serve all industry segments and markets in the Pacific Northwest. When completed, this new plant will replace the company’s existing corrugated operations in Longview. The new plant will be co-located with the Longview paper mill operations and will increase the integration of the mill’s containerboard.
