Today, SICPA is an international organisation with offices and factories on five continents. With around 3,000 staff of over 50 nationalities, we provide technologies and services in more than 200 countries around the world. We are a trusted security provider and adviser to governments, central banks, high-security printers and industry.
The company is organised around three global businesses: security inks; government security solutions; product and brand protection solutions. The executive management team of SICPA, together with several group functions, are based in the Lausanne Headquarters.
At the core of our security expertise are high-performance security inks that protect the majority of the world’s banknotes, security documents and value documents from the threats of counterfeiting and fraud. They range from inks developed for specific printing processes to solutions adapted for varnishing and theft deterrence systems.
We have experience of working with sovereign governments in implementing product authentication and tax reconciliation systems which integrate ink-based covert features and sophisticated traceability technologies. Today, we are the only organisation with production-monitoring systems that successfully ensure the traceability of products and secure the collection of excise tax and VAT throughout the world.
We provide tailored solutions and services to industry comprising integrated and multi-layered authentication, anti-tampering, identification and traceability with the aim of ensuring product and supply chain integrity. Our clients include industry sectors as diverse as healthcare, food & beverage, fast moving consumer goods, luxury goods and spare parts.
