Essentra is a leading international supplier of specialist plastic, fibre, foam and packaging products with four principal operating divisions: Component & Protection Solutions, Porous Technologies, Packaging & Securing Solutions and Filter Products. Through its four principal operating divisions, Essentra focuses on the light manufacture and distribution of high volume, essential components which serve customers in a wide variety of end-markets and geographies.
Previously branded as Filtrona, the new identity helps to bring together all our previously multi-branded offering under one name to underline our breadth of product range and specialist capabilities.
Essentra Components has become a strong product distributor across the globe through the culmination of ideals and products from a number of former businesses. These include Moss Plastics, Skiffy and Richco.
As the origins of Essentra Components, Moss Plastics, based in the UK, manufactures and distributes a broad range of injection and dip moulded components serving a wide range of industries. With local offices and distribution centres across Europe, the company was well placed to meet the challenging delivery requirements of our European-wide customers.
In 2004 the acquisition of Skiffy, based in Netherlands, helped expand our range of fasteners and fixings. Skiffy manufactured and distributed a range of proprietary plastic and metal products into a very wide range of industrial sectors. The product range is particularly strong in nylon washers, spacers and bushes.
Additionally, in 2011 the acquisition of Richco, Inc, based in Chicago with a wide European and Asian presence, helped expand our range of electrical components. Richco manufactures engineered injection moulded components primarily for the electronics and electrical industry. Their production technology has been carefully developed to provide optimal performance and maximum product flexibility. The product range is particularly strong in circuit board hardware and cable management components.
In 2013 the company acquired Ulinco Components AB, based in Sweden, a leading distributor of plastic protection and finishing products, hardware and specialist masking solutions in the Nordic region.
At the start of 2014 Mesan was acquired by Essentra plc., to form another extension to the Components division specialising in access hardware solutions. Based in Turkey, Mesan have been developing high performance ergonomic and innovative, customer orientated products for many years, making it a sure fit for the growing hardware segment of the then rebranded, Essentra Components. The product range is particularly strong in locks, hinges, gasketing and handles.
