DE LA RUE EXPANDS SRI LANKAN BANK NOTE PRINTING OPERATION

According to a September 16th article, "De La Rue, the world’s
leading commercial producer of banknotes, plans to expand its Sri
Lankan operation, catering to growing appetite for cash in overseas
markets.

The Sri Lankan plant, which is 40 percent owned by the island's
finance ministry, currently prints around one billion banknotes."

"The Sri Lankan banknote printing unit was opened in 1987 and
currently employs 200 people. The factory runs double shifts
daily ...

The unit originally started as a joint venture with Bradbury
Wilkinson, but Bradbury was later bought over by De La Rue."
