WestRock is an American corrugated packaging company.
It was formed in May 2015 after regulators approved the merger of MeadWestvaco and RockTenn. MeadWestvaco stockholders will receive 0.78 shares of the combined company. Rock-Tenn stockholders can choose either one share of the combined company or a specific cash amount for each of their shares.
The new company is currently the 2nd largest American packaging company. It is one of the world's largest paper and packaging companies with US$15 billion in annual revenue and 42,000 employees in 30 countries. The operating offices are located in Norcross, Georgia and executive offices in Richmond, Virginia.
In January 2018, the company acquired Plymouth Packaging, Inc. Later that month, WestRock announced that it would acquire rival pulp and paper company Kapstone. The deal is expected to close by the end of the third quarter of 2018.
