MPS — now WestRock-MPS — came into being in June 2017 when Multi Packaging Solutions (MPS) was taken over by WestRock.

As a global supplier of speciality packaging to the pharmaceutical/healthcare, branded food and drink and media sectors, WestRock-MPS’ history goes back more than 150 years in Northern Ireland.

It began in the centre of Belfast as WW Cleland in 1865. The company says that WestRock-MPS Belfast is “the modestly-scaled local centre of the organisation of over 45,000 staff operating in 30 countries across four continents”.

“We offer global capabilities while maintaining a local emphasis founded on strong business ethics and trusted partnerships.”

The company says it also benefits from a strategy of investing in the wellbeing and development of personnel.
