SICPA is a leading global provider of secured authentication, identification and traceability solutions and services. Founded in 1927 and headquartered in Lausanne, the privately-owned Swiss company is a long-trusted advisor to governments, central banks, high-security printers, and industry.
SICPA’s mission is to Enable Trust through constant innovation. For more than 70 years SICPA has been at the forefront of research and innovation in security inks which are at the core of the company’s expertise. SICPA inks and special features protect the majority of the world’s banknotes, security and value documents from counterfeiting and fraud.
The company integrates these security features with digital technologies, such as software and data management systems, to offer solutions and services to governments, ensuring product authentication, traceability and protection as well as tax reconciliation and production control. SICPA systems protect governments from tax revenue loss on products most often subject to illicit trade, such as excisable goods like alcohol, tobacco and fuel and support broader policy objectives in the fields of health and the environment. These systems also allow manufacturers to protect and authenticate their products and to engage consumers.
SICPA continues to focus on innovation in the digital area, working with inhouse R&D and external partners to provide solutions for e-government services.
Today, SICPA is a global company with offices and factories on five continents. With about 2,800 staff of over 50 nationalities, the company provides technologies and services to most nations worldwide.
