James Cropper is expanding its human resources capability as it continues the trajectory to build ‘world-class’ operations in advanced materials and bespoke paper products.

Established in 1845, the family-led PLC is driven by its purpose to ‘pioneer materials that will safeguard our global future’.

Mark Cropper, chairman of James Croppers PLC, said: “Croppers is built on 175 years of heritage, yet we avoid standing still with our continuous development to provide solutions for a cleaner, greener and safer world.

“Developing our people and our unique culture is central to our global reach and ambition. We are a 6th generation family business who love working with people that really believe in our culture and have the desire to become part of our story.”

With a global reach in over 50 countries the manufacturer uses materials such as cotton, wood and carbon fibre to support a range of industries from packaging, digital imaging and aerospace with products that are at the cutting edge of their performance.

Based in Burneside the community driven company has a workforce of over 600 employees across the UK and USA.

And the company recently published its 2021/2022 financial results to announce record-high sales of £104 million.

“With success comes expansion and change, and our global People function is leading the transformation.
