WestRock Plant Tour - November 8th at 6pm

Our November event will be a tour of the WestRock facility located at 5710 S. Laburnum Ave., Richmond, VA 23231.  Please RSVP to Genna at if you can make it!

WestRock operates a 317,000-square-foot plant on South Laburnum Avenue that makes pizza boxes for three of the largest pizza companies in the nation.  Every day, the factory churns out about 1.5 million boxes — or what WestRock, like other packaging manufacturers, prefers to call corrugated containers.  The plant makes containers not just for pizza, but for other consumer goods and e-commerce packaging.  Click here to learn more about the WestRock plant.

This tour will take you through the process of assembling, forming, and printing boxes. So all the goods delivered to you, from food delivery to your next online purchase will make it to you protected and look fantastic doing it. The plant process starts with rolls of paper coming in and ends with packages going to the customer to fill at their site. We will see the processes in between. 

Please see the attached document below for directions to the West Rock Plant.
