What we do

Operating in the fundamental areas of cash supply chain, product authentication and citizen identity needs, De La Rue applies vital values to the way in which we do business and the impact this has on our customers.
“To enable every citizen to participate securely in the global economy”
We support customers around the world in managing every part of the cash supply chain. De La Rue design, integrate, manufacture and deliver banknotes, banknote paper, polymer and security features to ensure currencies are secured against the threat of counterfeit and fraud.
Our integrated banknote solutions provide governments, central banks and state manufacturing with control over the production, circulation, management and destruction of banknotes, and an in-depth understanding of how cash moves around their economy.

De La Rue works as the Bank of England’s strategic partner through every stage of the production chain – from design to integration of security components through to the printing of the final high specification notes. The new-design £5, £10 and soon to be launched £20 next-generation Polymer notes, all uphold the heritage and global standing of the British currency and ensures its inherent security.
We create and deliver bespoke authentication and traceability solutions used in a wide variety of government and commercial applications.
