    WestRock Hopewell VA Dollars Boost Chamber Futures Initiative
    For the third year in a row the H/PG Chamber is the recipient of a generous contribution from long-time member WestRock.  In a conversation with mill manager, James Osborne, we learned that WestRock will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the mill in Hopewell in 2022. “In our region the mill is a significant part of the overall economic impact of manufacturing, one of our regions target sectors for economic growth,” according to H/PG Chamber CEO Becky McDonough. “It is important for the Hopewell mill to support the activities of the Chamber to preserve a sustainable community in which our employees live, work and raise families” shared Osborne (featured in photo with McDonough). 

    Today WestRock has 45,000 employees worldwide and over 300 locations and they are still growing.  In Virginia WestRock has a big foot print with a corporate presence in downtown Richmond, and production facilities in Richmond, WestPoint, Hopewell, Lynchburg, and Covington.
