Frequently asked questions about the renaming of ‘Technical Fibre Products’ & ‘TFP Hydrogen Products’ as James Cropper
Why have you re-branded?
The renewed brand strategy positions the Group along an exciting spectrum from heritage to cutting edge and leverages the brand value of the James Cropper name across all our markets and geographies. Our rebrand is the result of ongoing efforts to integrate our wholly-owned subsidiaries into one global company, to better serve our customers.

What’s the timeline for this change?
We have always been part of the James Cropper plc and today, we will start the journey to transition to one company, led by the business name of James Cropper. Over the remainder of the year we will support this change with a full rebranding effort. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us at: email@example.com.
Has the ownership structure of TFP & TFP Hydrogen changed?
In 1986, James Cropper was the first paper mill in the world to explore the possibility of using non-cellulose fibre in the paper machines. This led to the formation of Technical Fibres Products. Fast-forward to today, we will start the transition to re-group as one company, led by the business name of James Cropper. Over the next year we will support this change with a full rebranding effort.
