WestRock Company, a global manufacturer of differentiated paper and packaging solutions, broke ground yesterday (March 16) on a 285,000 square foot expansion at its consumer packaging facility in Claremont.

The expanded facility and its employees will support WestRock’s production of sustainable, fiber-based packaging for some of the world’s leading food, food service, and beverage brands.
