De La Rue recently hosted a visit from Samanth Subramanian from Quartz, the publishers of global news and insights for a new generation of business leaders. Samanth visited De La Rue to learn more about how a newspaper print business founded in 1813 evolved into the leading designer of banknotes and the largest commercial currency printer in the world, supplying to more than half of the world's banknote issuing authorities.
The visit explored the nuances of the currency industry, the truly global operations of De La Rue, and the innovations behind the latest designs and security features. It covered De La Rue's involvement in various aspects, including passport polycarbonate data pages, digital tax stamps, brand protection, and the experience of supplying currency products to 80-90 issuing authorities.
