It was a Tennessee company, the name Rock Tenn comes from the merger of two Tennessee companies. As the company expanded, a competitor in Norcross Georgia was merged into Rock Tenn and their land became the new headquarters. Too big of a company name to change it over a new location.

Thank you to RockTenn and the people that have worked hard on the local level to bring these much needed jobs to the community. From Etta to Laird, Resolution to Gulf States to RockTenn, this company has stayed the course and stuck with this county after all others have gone. Hopefully once everyone is finished bitching about the new pub in town and lack of job growth in our area someone will actually notice this topic.
