Ethiopia chooses new printer

The National Bank of Ethiopia has selected the french company Francois-Charles Oberthur (Oberthur Technologies) for the printing of 196.8 million five Birr notes, worth three billion Birr (about 122.8 million euro). 

Oberthur has been in business for almost 200 years. The company's namesake was an engraver who founded Impremier Oberthur Technologies, in 1818. Impremerie Oberthur was regrouped as Oberthur Technologies, in 2007, specialising in security-based smart card technologies and notes printing. It employs over 6,000 people worldwide.
