07:44 AM EST, 02/05/2021 (MT Newswires) -- Westrock Company (WRK) said Friday it is making "extensive" efforts to identify, contain and recover from the recent ransomware incident.

The paper and packaging company said upon discovering the incident, it began "an investigation, implemented business continuity processes and initiated response containment protocols with the support of cybersecurity experts."

As a result of this incident, shipments from some of the company's facilities have lagged production levels. These levels are recovering as the system is getting restored.

The company said its mill system production through Feb. 4 was around 85,000 tons lower than planned, and the packaging converting operations are close to returning to full production levels.
