Essentra's strong competitive position in the various international markets within which it operates has been developed through a combination of organic growth and acquisition activity. Since it began manufacturing filters in Jarrow back in the late 1940s, the Company has made significant investment in new global production and service capabilities in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the US ensuring that Essentra is better able to supply its multi-national customers and target growth from developing economies.
Essentra is a leading international supplier of specialist plastic, fibre, foam and packaging products with four Strategic Business Units: Distribution, Specialist Technologies, Health & Personal Care Packaging and Filter Products.
Every day we produce and distribute millions of small but essential components. Our products may not be noticeable – or even recognisable – but wherever you are, our business is all around you.
