Our Fully Integrated Approach

The banknote printing industry has evolved dramatically over the past decade. What was once a craft centered on ink and paper is now a sophisticated, technology-driven process. As a fully integrated supplier, Crane Currency supports customers through every step of this journey. Our comprehensive services span from papermaking and banknote design to advanced banknote printing, ensuring that we meet the high demands of modern banknote production. 


Crane Currency stands out by offering a complete range of services – from initial concept and design to the final print. This control over the entire process allows us to create tailored solutions that meet the specific needs of central banks.  

Whether we’re managing the entire production or stepping in as advisors for specific projects, our expertise ensures the best possible outcomes. We can assist with everything from tender preparation to providing technical support, adapting our role to suit each customer’s requirements. 


We believe in the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing. Every central bank has unique needs, and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Our on-site workshops are a testament to our commitment to this collaborative approach. These sessions are highly valued by our customers and allow them to engage deeply with the process, leading to better results. By working closely with our clients, we build long-term partnerships that foster mutual growth and success.
