MWV specialty chemicals division named as Ingevity

NORTH CHARLESTON, US: Ingevity will be the new name of MWV specialty chemicals division of WestRock Company. It will begin transacting business as Ingevity on 1 Sept. As previously announced, the business is slated to be spun off as an independent, publicly-traded company around the end of the year.

The separation is expected to be executed by means of a tax-free spinoff of the specialty chemicals business to shareholders of WestRock Company, resulting in two independent, publicly traded companies.The spinoff is expected to be completed around the end of the calendar year, subject to customary conditions. There can be no assurance regarding the ultimate timing of the spinoff or that it will be completed.

“Ingevity is a unique expression of our purpose - to turn our customers’ complex challenges into powerful possibilities. The name speaks to our longstanding record of success and commitment to serving our customers through innovative products, processes and services. Our announcement is the first step in a comprehensive plan to launch our brand, and define our future as a separate and independent company that will be better positioned to profitably grow in our targeted markets,” said Ed Rose, president, MWV specialty chemicals.

The specialty chemicals division develops and delivers high performance chemicals and materials – enabling oil to flow better, colours to shine brighter, roads to last longer and air to breathe cleaner. The division generates industry leading returns by exceeding the performance expectations of its customers across the mega-trend aligned markets of energy, infrastructure and transportation.
