Crane Currency, a Crane Co. company, is a fully integrated supplier of secure, durable and well-designed banknotes for central banks all over the world. A pioneer in advanced micro-optics technology, Crane Currency provides a wide range of engaging visual effects in features that increase the level of security and public trust in banknotes.
Our vision is to be the preferred printer of choice of central banks worldwide.
Client central banks benefit from Crane Currency’s combined expertise in design, paper making and printing – and a culture of knowledge sharing and long-term partnerships. With its heritage in the USA and Sweden for over 200 years, Crane Currency is today a global company and a trusted partner of more than 50 central banks. The growth of Crane Currency has meant that as its market share increased, the company required more capacity to produce the larger volumes of banknote orders.
After an exhaustive process of evaluation, Malta was chosen as the location for a new world class, state-of-the-art facility. Equipment from the world’s two largest and most successful currency printing suppliers was ordered, installations taking place in the third quarter of 2017 and production commenced in December 2017.
The opening of Crane Currency’s site in Hal Far, Malta provided career opportunities in many functions within the organisation. Crane Currency, both in Malta and globally, wants to be seen and considered as an employer of choice.
The Malta site includes a Customer Experience Centre to further deepen customer relationships in Malta by engaging them in the banknote design and production process, an exciting way for central banks to develop banknotes of the future. It is here a combination of industry-leading equipment, design expertise and the latest security technology is showcased in an environment designed to inspire learning and action. The Centre provides interactive demonstrations that present Crane Currency’s innovative and world-leading technology for banknotes, including security features of today and tomorrow along with areas to explore how to optimize the design of banknotes for the public and the machines.
