What we do
Established over 200 years ago, De La Rue work with governments, central banks and commercial organisations around the globe in three core areas:
Cash Supply Chain, producing banknotes; Citizen Identity including passports and identity management; and Product Authentication protecting brands and fighting counterfeiting.
To provide governments and commercial organisations with products and services that underpin the integrity of trade, personal identity and the movement of goods.
Operating in the fundamental areas of cash supply chain, citizen identity and product authentication 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.
Bank of England banknotes case study
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. Our new-design fiver upholds the heritage and global standing of the British currency and ensures inherent security. The result is a next-generation technical solution produced on polymer.
De La Rue create high quality passports and identity solutions for our customers all over the world, allowing citizens to belong to and participate in society. We offer an award-winning design service and a wide range of security features.
In addition to providing the physical product, we have created a bespoke, single and complete identity management data and insight solution.
eGovernment identity solutions play a vital part in helping states to create a better future and more effective service delivery for their citizens. De La Rue is working with the government of Rwanda to create and implement a multi-functional smart eID card, providing Rwandans with a trusted and secure system for proving their identity and getting access to government services.
We create and deliver bespoke authentication and traceability solutions used in a wide variety of government and commercial applications. From secure physical identifiers in the form of tax stamps and product authentication labels to digital software solutions, De La Rue is helping to protect against counterfeit and illicit trade, securing revenue and safeguarding reputation.
