Who are Essentra Components?

Essentra Components have been supporting customer projects for over 65 years, which is why we work with over 70% of the world’s global manufacturers: from automotive to electronics, equipment manufacturing to medical. 

Essentra Components manufactures and distributes small, essential components, such as protective plastic caps & plugs, fasteners, latches, locks & hinges and PCB hardware for a huge range of industries and applications from our production site in Oxfordshire, and 13 other facilities globally.. 

Essentra has evolved over the years. In 2014, three companies: Moss, Skiffy and Richco Inc. were joined together to form Essentra Components. This provided our customers with a vast selection of industrial components across Europe, America and Asia.
