The remaining two machines at the Evadale mill will continue to support important end markets, including liquid packaging, foodservice, food and premium coated preprint linerboard for corrugated boxes, among other grades. The company’s total SBS production capacity after this action will be approximately 1.9 million tons.
“As a company, we aim to balance our supply with our customers’ demand,” says Patrick Lindner, CIO and president-Consumer Packaging for WestRock. “Given current economic conditions and anticipated supply needs, we believe that reducing production capacity at the Evadale mill will improve its competitiveness while enabling WestRock to more efficiently serve our customers.”
