WestRock is located at the 2900 block of Louisville Ave. It's a courrugated packaging company.
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo says in part:
"We regret to hear that WestrRock will be ceasing its local operations this summer, and 84 employees will be losing their jobs. Because they are skilled workers, these affected employees can take advantage of a variety of job opportunities in our city and region.
Thankfully, there are also mechanisms in place to assist with training and new job opportunities."
