We supply over 150 countries with banknote paper and foil, printed banknotes, and banknote processing systems. Our international customers include central and commercial banks, banknote printing plants, and cash-in-transit companies.

Our innovative solutions ensure counterfeit protection, enhanced durability, and efficient processing.

Uniquely identified

G&D | Business Segments

Reliable ways of identifying people are increasingly important in our networked, globalized world. Citizens must be able to prove their identity and need modern passports for international travel and border controls. Innovative ID systems and documents are safeguarding security across national boundaries. Companies are securing access to their workplaces and IT networks and protecting their branded products against counterfeiting. Consumers are demanding improved security for their online transactions and in the healthcare sector, too, patients expect better care through efficient data management. For each of these challenges, G&D provides high-performance and reliable solutions that are already in use around the world. In addition, we are making a substantial commitment to the development of appropriate standards and guidelines for these solutions.
