Turning Threats into Opportunities
Currency News has met with Sam Keayes, President at Crane Currency, to find out more about the company’s strengths and what it – and the broader industry – are doing to face the challenges ahead.
In the interview, Sam talks about the opportunities gained through being part of Crane Co.
“In Sweden, we have been manufacturing banknotes since 1755. In the US, we have supplied the most durable banknote substrate in the world since 1879 – in fact our paper was used even earlier in the original currency that allowed the USA to become an independent nation.
Innovation is also in our DNA. Zenas Crane’s 19th century invention of embedding a silk thread into banknote paper was the revolutionary security technology of its time.
Being part of a diversified, multi-national company like Crane Co. gives us unrivalled long-term stability and access to investment. As part of a transparent, publicly owned company, our customers can also see for themselves that we are in excellent financial shape, that we implement the most ethical business practices and that we take our commitments to society, philanthropy and the environment seriously.”
