Dear Valued Partner,

On September 1, we launched our new name – Ingevity (formerly known as MWV Specialty Chemicals). Ingevity is a unique expression of why we exist – to turn our customers’ complex challenges into powerful possibilities. The name speaks to our longstanding commitment to serving our customers through innovative products, processes and services.

As we transition to Ingevity, we continue to operate as a business of WestRock Company. We are slated to complete our spinoff to become an independent, publicly-traded company in the first quarter of 2016.

In the meantime, you will see our Ingevity name and logo on documents, business cards and other communications with you.

When our legal name is necessary, you will see WestRock MWV LLC. This is a temporary step we must take before changing our legal name to Ingevity Corporation, which is also expected by the end of the first quarter of 2016.

Our corporate office address is:

5255 Virginia Avenue
N. Charleston, SC 29406

We greatly appreciate your continued support. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or send us an e-mail at


Hunter Harris
Director of Operations, Ingevity
