Something about De La Rue Malta
De La Rue’s relationship in Malta goes back over a century; De La Rue produced Malta’s first stamp in 1860 and became the supplier of its banknotes in 1918, continuing as the sole supplier until Malta entered the Euro in 2008.

Recognising the strategic and geographical importance of Malta as a highly-skilled production facility and an export hub to the rest of the world, De La Rue first commenced its operations in the country with a purpose-built banknote factory. This marked the start of a long, strong, and supportive relationship between the people and the Government of Malta.

Our relationship, investment and growth continued, with a second facility to expand our product range opening in 2008 and the creation of a Centre of Excellence for Security Print in 2016. We’ve also made significant progress in reducing the environmental impact of our operations and will continue to focus here.

The site today exports over 14 billion unique banknotes, tax stamps and other high-security products to over 85 countries around the world – that’s over 30,000 items for every single person living in Malta. Planned investments will further improve our capability and increase our production capacity. Our tax stamp capacity will more than double and increased banknote capacity will create a more agile footprint, with the ability to handle surges in demand.

Products produced in Malta include

  • Tax stamps
  • Authentication labels
  • Banknotes
  • Polycarbonate data pages
