MeadWestvaco Expands Across Virginia


Rooted in The Commonwealth More Than a Century


Fortune 500 company MeadWestvaco (MWV) first established operations in the Commonwealth more than a century ago through the construction of a paper mill in Covington, Va. What could hardly be imagined in 1899 was that the Covington Mill, as it would later be known, would become the world’s largest solid bleached sulfate mill, producing 900,000 tons of high-quality paperboard each year.

MWV continues to improve and expand this facility — in June 2011 the company announced plans to invest $285 million to construct a new, state-of-the-art boiler and upgrade the associated power infrastructure at the mill. Exporting nearly 50% of its production to international markets, Chairman and CEO John A. Luke, Jr. explained, "Virginia is not only our corporate home, it is a major base of operations and gateway for our business around the world."
