WestRock plant in Lanett primed for growth with expansion

LANETT, Alabama — The Chambers County Development Authority announced that WestRock Co. plans an investment in its manufacturing operation in Lanett that will increase the facility’s competitiveness and position the area for job growth.

Atlanta-based WestRock, a provider of differentiated paper and packaging solutions, will expand its Chambers County operation to accommodate an increase in business, as well as prepare the plant for future growth with the addition of at least 50 jobs.

In 2017, the company ceased manufacturing operations at its beverage plant in Atlanta. A portion of the work from the Atlanta facility was subsequently transferred to the plant in Lanett.
