British leading security printing company seeks business in Zambia
A delegation from the TALL Group of Companies, a leading UK security printing company for the provision of secure paper and payment solutions, is in Zambia to explore business opportunities.
TALL Group, with over 20 years’ experience in the field of security printing, has developed a range of secure document and electronic solutions for the Financial Sector, Government and Electoral Commissions, the Education Sector as well as for private businesses and organisations.
Speaking in Lusaka today British High Commissioner, James Thornton, said:
“I am delighted to see a rise in the number of UK companies coming to Zambia to seek trade and investment opportunities. Just last year there were two trade missions to Zambia by UK companies. We launched the British Chamber of Commerce last week. This demonstrates increased interest among UK companies to do business with Zambia. All of these activities are encouraged by the Zambian government’s continued efforts to improve the business environment in order to attract more foreign trade and investment.
“TALL already provides CheckPrint Solution (a bulk cheque printing system) to customers in Zambia and hopes to increase exports of its products and services to other companies and organisations in the country.”
TALL Group Managing Director, Martin Ruda, said:
“We are delighted to be working with UKTI and the British High Commission in order to present our company, and its range of products and services, to interested parties in Zambia. We actively develop and promote our product across Africa as there is a demand for British expertise and quality when it comes to our technology.”
“The Group is able to provide secure documents such as cheque and other banking documents, ballot papers and election materials, personalised degree certificates, vouchers, licences, revenue receipts and so on. In addition, the Company is able to provide a range of cheque scanners and cheque related software systems. Our clients are based primarily in the Caribbean, the Middle East and in Africa. These include Electoral Commissions, the UNDP, major banks, Government Departments and so on.”
While in Lusaka Mr Cas Amato, TALL Group Export Manager and Mr Martin Ruda, TALL Group Managing Director, will be holding meetings with interested businesses and organisations to promote TALL Group’s products and services.
TALL Security Print Extends Product Portfolio with £500k Investment
TALL Security Print Ltd, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure print and payment solutions, has invested half a million pounds in new printing equipment at its headquarters in Runcorn. The significant outlay will allow the organisation to enhance and extend its existing product and services portfolio.
As a part of the investment programme, TALL Security Print has acquired a B3 Xerox Versant digital press to boost its colour printing capabilities across the organisation. An AMS inkjet system has also been installed to enable the company to print variable data at high speeds, including in-line numbering, barcodes and addresses.
In addition, TALL Security Print has replaced its existing form cutting equipment with two continuous guillotines from Spedo. The new machines will increase reliability and quality when it comes to processing materials. Finally, the company is taking delivery of a replacement Imer continuous five-colour litho press with a rewind function and UV drying. The press was built specifically for the company in Spain.
The new equipment being installed across the business will increase productivity and efficiency, which will result in substantial time and cost savings. By strengthening its portfolio of services, especially with the introduction of the digital press from Xerox, TALL Security Print is also opening itself up to new marketplaces, both in the UK and internationally.
Martin Ruda, Managing Director of the TALL Group of Companies, said: “It is absolutely crucial for TALL Security Print to secure its position as the UK market leader by continuing to develop its wide range of world class services, for both new and existing clients. Through the acquisition of the Xerox Versant, the company is now able to supplement its portfolio by offering high quality variable data products. This substantial investment programme will play a key role in our future plans for growth, at a time when we see new opportunities emerging at home and abroad.”
TALL Security Print produce Fuel Coupons for OiLibya after Contract Win
TALL Security Print, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and payment solutions, has been chosen by OiLibya, the pan-African energy group, to exclusively provide the company’s fuel coupons in Ethiopia. TALL Security Print has produced one million fuel coupons to be used across all of OiLibya’s service stations in the east African country.
OiLibya operates a fuel coupon system, which is used by the drivers of large businesses and organisations to obtain fuel for company vehicles. Upon winning the contract, TALL Security Print enhanced the design of the coupons that were previously being used by the energy group. In addition, both overt and covert security features were incorporated into the new design, providing a significantly greater degree of protection against fraud. Before being distributed to its customers, OiLibya overprint the coupons with the name of the customer, denomination and data reference fields. Once the coupons are redeemed for fuel, the service stations send them back to a centralised office to be scanned and processed through OiLibya’s accounting system.
Martin Ruda, Managing Director of TALL Security Print, said: “TALL Security Print continues to innovate in order to provide customers with the most up-to-date solutions whilst delivering exceptional value. This has been a key reason behind the company’s growth not only in the UK, but also internationally. We are pleased that our skills and experience continue to be recognised across the world.”OiLibya, said: “The specialist team at TALL Security Print quickly produced a large number of coupons that perfectly matched our brief. When discussing the company’s requirements with TALL Security Print, we were impressed with the range of security features it could incorporate into the finished product, which will help to stop fraudulent activity across our operations in Ethiopia.”
