Deal: Manufacturer to expand corporate headquarters in Norcross

Norcross-based RockTenn will add 500 new jobs and invest $5 million to expand the company’s corporate headquarters.

RockTenn, a leading integrated manufacturer of corrugated and consumer packaging and recycling solutions, recently purchased Smurfit-Stone Container Corp., which had operated dual corporate headquarters based in St. Louis and Chicago.

“RockTenn expanding its corporate headquarters here is big news not only because 500 new jobs will be created, but also because this top Fortune 500 company has chosen Georgia as the best place to keep doing business for years to come,” Gov. Nathan Deal said in a news release. “RockTenn currently employs more than 1,100 Georgians and helping to secure the future of those existing jobs with this investment is just as important as adding the new ones.”
