History

The Company was established in Jarrow in the 1940's as the Fibres division of Bunzl. [http://www.filtrona.com/History.asp Filtrona History] ] In 1955 it acquired Moss Plastic Products, a plastic products manufacturer, in 1994 MSI Oilfield Products, a pipe protection business, and in 1996 it bought Payne, a manufacturer of self-adhesive tapes.

In 1997 the Bunzl Fibres division bought Filtrona Corporation, a US filter technology specialist which it had demerged in 1984.

Filtrona bought Enitor, a Dutch extruder business, in 1998 and Skiffy Group, a Dutch nylon parts business in 2004. Filtrona was demerged from Bunzl in 2005.
