WestRock Company WRK is a provider of paper and packaging solutions to consumer and corrugated markets. WestRock was formed from the merger of MeadWestvaco Company and Rock-Tenn Company on Jul 1, 2015. WestRock is realizing the strategic benefits of the merger.
WestRock expects to exceed an $825 million run rate by the end of fiscal year 2017 and remains well on track to achieve its $1 billion target by the end of third-quarter fiscal 2018. The company’s productivity and performance improvement programs across its manufacturing footprint as well as its cost-saving actions remain tailwinds. WestRock's recent acquisitions to augment its corrugated packaging business will help it capitalize on the growing demand.
