Filtrona plc, the Milton Keynes, England-based manufacturer and supplier of specialty plastics and foam, has renamed itself Essentra plc.

The company said the name change, the process of which took more than a year, was designed to "capture what each of Filtrona's business manufactures and supplies, namely millions of small but essential components."

Filtrona CEO Colin Day said the roll-out of the new name across all the group's operations would be completed by the end of this year.

"Through working in a more coordinated way and leveraging our collective skills and capabilities under a single brand, we can benefit all our stakeholders and be an even more relevant partner to them.

"As such, we believe that Essentra clearly encapsulates what the company does, is and aspires to be," he added.
