Filtrona to change name to Essentra

| June 6, 2013

Filtrona plc is to be renamed Essentra plc from June 26 and the company’s various divisions will be renamed later this year.

Filtrona Filter Products will become Essentra Filter Products while Payne and Contego will be brought together under the name Essentra Packaging.

In a press note, Payne and Contego said the name Essentra had been chosen to capture what each of Filtrona’s businesses manufactured and supplied: millions of small but essential components that often played a ‘critical enabling role in the products of our customers, everywhere and every day’.

According to the note, Filtrona, as part of its Vision 2015 strategy, has been creating a more unified culture. And hence the Essentra brand will be adopted by each of Filtrona’s businesses in a change from the current situation where the corporate name and logo is used by some but not all divisions.

One other change will see Filtrona’s Coated & Security Products division, of which Payne and Contego are a part, being renamed Packaging & Securing Solutions.
